From the Publisher

Something is remarkably new in the present business culture, particularly in what is now called the Internet Century. Interestingly, power is now in the hands of consumers and, practically, they have unrestricted access to all industry sectors. Most significantly, within companies, working groups and even individuals are potential influencers. These insiders—also known as the “smart creatives”—can greatly influence an organization, and they are tech savvy, business smart and creative all rolled into one. They use modern technological tools to optimize results and with unprecedented speed as well.

In the case of Google, the company made it to the top by deviating from traditional corporate practices, in particular by taking in smart creatives, and in addition, providing them a work environment that encourages unhampered productivity.

If your aim is to succeed in the Internet Century, which by the way is just starting, think of effective ways to recruit these smart creatives. To do this, you have to re-think your way of doing things, your methods, and your pool of talents not to mention the way you make decisions, the communication flow and how innovative you can get. Structure your business around the smart creatives who are proven influences and you can be assured your business will succeed.

How to Fix the Internet

We have to fix the internet. After 40 years, it has begun to corrode, both itself and us. It is still a marvelous and miraculous invention, but now there are bugs in the foundation, bats in the belfry, and trolls in the basement. I do not mean this to be one of those technophobic rants dissing the internet for rewiring our brains to give us the twitchy attention span of Donald Trump on Twitter or pontificating about how we have to log off and smell the flowers. Those qualms about new technologies have existed ever since Plato fretted that the technology of writing would threaten memorization a

Tech Aid for Retirees

FORGET THE ROCKING CHAIRS and early-bird discounts. What will really improve your life in retirement is an Internet connection. New devices, apps, and other software make it easier for retirees to stay healthy, live independently, and enjoy their lives to the fullest. “Technology is changing both our expectations and life in retirement,” says Joseph Coughlin, head of the MIT AgeLab. As the population of Net-connected retirees grows—58% of people ages 65 and older use the Internet, according to the Pew Research Center, up from 14% in 2000—there’s greater opportunity to use electronic gear to r

The Nomad Who’s Exploding the Internet Into Pieces

Dominic Tarr is a computer programmer who grew up on a remote farm in New Zealand. Down in the antipodes, isolation is even more isolating. Getting goods, people, and information to and from Australasia for families like Tarr’s has always been difficult. Bad, unreliable internet service is a particular challenge. Australia and New Zealand are first-world countries with third-world latency. Today, Tarr lives on a sailboat—another Kiwi staple, alongside sheep and distance. Connectivity is worse on the boat than on the farm, and even less reliable. But that’s by design rather than by misfortune.
