The Reluctant Blogger

At the end of a client engagement, I like to capture some of the elemental aspects that emerged over the period. I used to keep these in notebooks, but finally, after many many ‘launch failures’ I’m getting into the discipline of committing these to a blog.

If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

Hopefully there’s something here that may offer a different perspective or foster some insight of your own.

Welcome to the world

Once upon a time there was a little boy who had a vivid imagination…

Then one day he discovered a book and he thought

“This is amazing – think of all the things that could be learned”

Then one day he discovered technology and he thought

“This is amazing – think of all the things that could be made”

Then one day he found a computer and he thought

“This is amazing – think of all the things that could be built”

Then one day he saw a modem and he thought

“This is amazing – think of all the computers I could reach”

Then one day he saw a network and he thought

“This is amazing – think of all the connections I could make”

Then one day he saw a mobile phone and he thought

“This is amazing – think of all the places I could call from”

Then one day he saw the internet and he thought

“This is amazing – think of all the information I could find”

Then one day he saw a smart phone and he thought

“This is amazing – think of all the apps I could make”

Then one day he saw a drone and he thought

“This is amazing – think of all the robots that could be built”

Then one day he saw an AI and he thought

“This is amazing – think of all the things that it could think about”

But every day he saw his wife and children and he thought

“This is amazing”
