Places, perception, people and networks: What connects it all?

social media connections CSC Blogs

The world of social media is changing our sense of place, our perception of people and expanding the networks that connect us. At the beginning of February, I had more than 1,426 connections on Linkedin, 726 Twitter followers (small compared to the 6.6 million some people and bots have) and 23 blogs published in 2016 and 4 in 2017. Around 2,000 […]

How much would you pay a robot or AI to do your job?

robots ethics CSC Blogs

The other day, while working with some awesome and inspiring people, we started thinking about some of the processes that would be done in the future by artificial intelligence or a robot. Thoughts are wonderful things that can take you in all kinds of directions, and my mind started racing to the question of wages, the “who, what, where, when and hows” of […]

Good enough is never good enough, right?

goals success leadership CSC Blogs

Good enough is never good enough, right? Have you ever drawn, rehearsed, practiced, written something 1,000 times, starting over again and again, wanting something so much that everything you do becomes “never good enough?” Never good enough is a philosophy that pushes us toward choosing the riskier more original idea, right? It also encourages us to never stop learning. […]

“When I was just a little girl, I asked my mother what will I be? Will I be handsome? Will I be rich? Here’s what she said to me? Que Sera Sera. Whatever will be, will be. The future’s not ours to see, Que Sera Sera.” ~ Jay Livingston and Ray Evans When I was […]

The future of spatial science: A techie map of the universe

spatial future CSC Blogs

The Future of Spatial Science was something I always thought others would be telling me. I remember sitting in the Association of Geographic Information (AGI) conference about 8 years ago, learning about how spatial was impacting the world. I saw some of the first versions of augmented reality on the big screen. As we were “walked” through an outdoors environment, the room […]

Being ever mindful, present and sharp for a Happily Ever After

Have you ever been asked, “How do you keep on top of things?” How do we all manage the different tasks and feelings we experience on a daily basis? How do we keep them in check and stop them from spilling over? My short answer is that when you know yourself at your best and your worst, you know what to watch for and how to keep yourself in […]

Distance, place and time in a connected world

collaboration remote working CSC World

In the movie Toy Story, when Buzz Lightyear joins the team, the whole world of the toys is thrown into turmoil and change. They must find a new balance and way of working, even though their world is ultimately expanded and changed for the better. In this blog, I want to look at some of the remote teams I have worked […]

10 commonplace things you never would have said 10 years ago

Big data CSC Blogs

In this digital revolution, the world is changing rapidly. Without us even noticing it, our ways of working have changed, and new words have become part of our vocabulary. Some of my favorites are below. When reading, ask yourself: “Would I have said this 10 years ago?” “Forgot my tablet.” The first iPad was released in 2010, and the first Microsoft […]

Information overload in a virtually augmented world

information overload CSC Blogs

#BrainOverload #InformationOverload #DigitalDisruption #DigitalMind #DigitalRehab Are these hashtags good or bad? It depends on which storyline you choose. At CSC TechCom earlier this year, I tweeted a few times about #InformationOverload. Why? Because I was learning new things from 6 a.m. until midnight whilst dealing with jetlag, homesickness and manflu (Yes, women get manflu too). All […]
