Slough and back

Been down to Slough and back today, so spent a lot of time in the car on the phone. I also had a very interesting email from a former IBMer soon to be AT&Ter. Things don’t sound great for the people involved but we’ll see what comes out in wash.

Has the tablet changed your life?

Tabletblog has a post on how the Asus eePc has changed his behaviour at home and wonders how the tablet has changed peoples mobile habits. I’ve not had my N800 for a couple fo weeks and it’s been great. I’ve now flashed it to OS2008 and installed some cool apps such as Mauku, Wordpy and a few others. I’m using it for internet access, reading mail and feeds that sort of thing.

I haven’t figured out how to work with the contacts and I’m not sure I want to, I’ll look at plaxo again but I’m in no hurry. So for me the tablet has made casual browsing a lot more fun and a lot less trouble.

Sharing information within an enterprise has a great post on making yourself useful, the first tip is ‘share what you know’. This is one of the biggest problems within large organisations, you find one person who knows how everything works, he or she knows lots of useful information but thinks that by keeping it to themsleves is the best approach.

I agree with the lifehack post, share the information, put it somewhere where others can find it. Be the person that finds out how stuff works and docuement it quickly and post it somewhere safe. You’ll be know as the person that get’s stuff done and helps others to get stuff done. Those are the qualities of the people you want in your organisation.

The way in which information is shared within organisation is still an interesting issue, locked away teamrooms in lotus notes and shared drives are just of the, in my view, ineffiecient ways of sharing information. But how you share is a topic of it’s own, but for now, share everything.
