We read a lot. So we ate our own dog food and got serious about focusing our own information diets—and sharing habits—in service of what our clients are really into.
Take a look at our magazines on Flipboard (which you can find under the research tab of our website or by clicking here: https://flipboard.com/@causeit to see what we've been reading.
During his recent visit to talk with members of the Telecom Industry Association, MJ was interviewed about cyborg anthropology, digital business platforms, innovation and the Social Network of Things. In this nine minute video, he unpacks some of the core concepts, opportunities and challenges that we are engaging with in our current work:
- What is the Social Network of Things, and why is it important?
- What does it mean to move from IT as a utility to informatics as a capability?
- How do shifts in how technology is used—and what it's capable of—change the way companies do business with each other and with their customers?
Damon Albarn, famed for his frontman role in the bands Blur and Gorillaz, released this great music video "Everyday Robots" a few months ago. The lyrics provide a subtle and powerful critique of our relationship with technology and were a great soundtrack as our team crafted Cyborgs and The Social Network of Things, a visual guide to our progression from the information age and the Internet of Things (IoT) towards what might be called an age of cyborgs.
