Warren Buffet once said, “It takes twenty years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.” The most obvious example that comes to mind is the dramatic failure of former audit giant: Arthur Anderson. Its speedy and complete melt-down during the Enron debacle demonstrates the extent of the damage that can be inflicted on an organization once its reputation is destroyed.more....

"You're never going to make a completely allergy-free soybean plant because you're not going to be able to eliminate all the proteins in it," said Helm. Rather, "we're looking to make a safer product." Many soy-sensitive consumers are also allergic to other foods, particularly those among the big eight. Singling out soy's major allergen could shorten the list of products they need to avoid.

This report is tentative and provocative. It is meant to inspire you to re-think and revitalize the Lisbon agenda and especially the European ICT agenda. Over the past years we booked important results with relatively modest means: the implementation of the ONP-guidelines and the exchange of innovative ideas and best practices (as part of the e-Europe Action Plans). It brought us a more open market for electronic communications, and stimulated the roll out and take up of new ICT-infrastructures and services. It made clear once more how tight the take up of ICT is related to innovation and sustainable economic growth. But we will not attain our targets by merely continuing in these tracks. The burst of the IT-bubble, new Member States, new technological possibilities and the rise of competing powers from Asia to America, - they all require a fresh look at our targets and the way to achieve them.more....

In our scenario and visioning work, we need to clarify whether our focus is to find one image of or pathway to the future or to create forums for generating many of them. In my understanding, the processes involved in generating one overarching vision and many diverse visions are different (although similar and in no way mutually exclusive).

We may work on one image, just to show that a good future is truly possible. Or we may create multiple visions to open a space of possibility that may have juice for diverse people, projects or perspectives. Or we may generate a very generalized vision which inspires diverse people to create their own specific version of that. And so on.

SOAs start with services, which are groups of software components that carry out business processes. At its most basic, an SOA is a collection of services on a network that communicate with one another. The services are loosely coupled, have well-defined, platform-independent interfaces, and are reusable. SOA focuses on business processes and standard interfaces, helping to mask the underlying technical complexity of the IT environment. more....

There’s no argument that the internet has given rise to new sexual speech. Foucault, Sedgwick, Rubin, all would rejoice a little. Now, though, surrounded by new online sex acts each day, is it not time to apply a bit of a critical eye to how sexuality is produced by the internet? How we play a part in the production of sex in not just our reading, linking, and tagging, but in what we don’t even think to look for?more....
