Laughing at the CIO

Bob Boiko, author of the Content Management Bible, has written a short but powerful modern-day fable about IT leadership entitled Laughing at the CIO.

Laughing at the CIO

I enjoyed the book enough to provide cover blurbs. Here's one they didn't use:

In Laughing at the CIO, there is no such thing as the intranet, and neither emperor nor elephant wear clothes. This revealing parable about information strategy is required reading for executives, managers, and anyone else who would prefer not to find themselves indecently exposed.

Disclosure: I'm honored to be a member of Bob's circle of trust.

Strange Connections

This short video provocation by Clay Shirky (delivered at Supernova 2007) is about enduring love, and it's well worth watching.
