World Water Day – 22 March 2015
March 19, 2015
Springtime, the mere word brings the message of light, life and growth. At least here in Sweden where our winters are quite long, dark and cold. We cherish the first sunny days and when we can enjoy a cup of coffee outside on the porch or in the backyard.  Life is good! But what we take for granted isn't there for everyone. A house, a job, food on the table. To even consider the idea of not having clean water, cold and warm, flowing from [...]

Where do you go to find creativity?
February 20, 2015

I don't know if you agree with me, but I believe that it is worth a lot to sometimes leave your desk, pack your bag and go somewhere else to work. Yesterday I had such a day. Usually my desk is where most of my work is happening. I have what I need in arm's length and the coffee machine isn't far away. But it can also become the limiting factor. Your are bound in a circle and you need to break free. So after lunch I decided to take a walk and find some creative space to work from.

Now that looks like a whole different place than my office. The large Macforum, Apple re-seller, shop downtown Göteborg. I entered and to my surprise they had an open space were anybody was welcome to sit down and listen to open seminars [...]

February 13, 2015

  2. Touch the phone to the speaker.
  3. And the speaker will play your favorite song.
  4. No user interaction needed. No PIN-codes to enter.

Gartner reminds us about the humans in the center of automation and digital businesses
November 18, 2014

Humans in digital business and automation

15758692492_a42d2ce887_zFrank Buytendijk from Gartner spoke last week in Barcelona about the dual perspectives of the increased automation and digital business of today. On one side it's the machine-to-machine perspective where automation and speed is key and on the other side you find the humane perspective where people response and behavior needs to be taken in account. For example imagine the scenario where you crash your car, not fatal. The machine perspective would make the car contact the rescue services, insurance company and the road clearance service company automatically. And send your spouse an e-mail informing [...]
