    Christian – fan mail – great post. Perhaps we pretend there is no such things as computers, networks and clouds, re-imagine our company collaboration culture, systems and procedures, and then think through how technology might help. Like social media, start with what we want our relationships to be – what is a good relationship – then add technology and see if it makes it better or worse. Thanks for all your great posts.

  • Daniel, you’re exactly right. Technology is about enabling your strategies and company culture — they themselves are neither your strategy nor your culture. As technologists, we get all excited by the shiny new toys and bright lights, and often forget what our solutions are trying to achieve, which is business productivity.
