Quotes of the Week

Today I wish to collect quotes from some of the blogs' posts that I read during the week.

I do love when I come across content that challenges my thinking and makes me reflect about the world our organisations (and ourselves with them) have been living.

In the coming years, there will be a shift toward what is now known as contextual computing... Always-present computers, able to sense the objective and subjective aspects of a given situation, will augment our ability to perceive and act in the moment based on where we are, who we’re with, and our past experiences. These are our sixth, seventh, and eighth senses...Even office productivity will move to such a model.” Pete Mortensen 

The shortcut that satisfies us in the moment gets in the way of our long term goals.” Seth Godin 

The best experiences and the biggest ideas don't fit into a category. They change it. They don't get filed away, they transform us.” Seth Godin 

How about you? Have you read anything in particular this week that has challenged your thinking and reflections on internal communications, internal social media and engagement?
