« Meet Mr. VMware at EMC | Main | Why Supporting Knowledge Workers Is Hard For IT »

June 09, 2008



I'll second that - definitely interesting reading.

I was especially intrigued by something in your next to last comment: "IT managers will find themselves at ground zero for what I believe is the most significant transformation in our economy ever—from an economy of transactions to knowledge and information."

A transaction moves an asset from a lower to a higher value use, which is what creates wealth in our economy. Could you elaborate on what it means to transition from an economy of transactions to knowledge and information? I'm curious what your thinking is regarding wealth creation in a knowledge and information based economy.

Hi Daniel -- I thought I'd done an OK job explaining the thinking in previous posts, but -- on second thought -- it probably deserves a post of its own.

I thought this post covered the thinking (http://chucksblog.typepad.com/chucks_blog/2008/04/the-changing--3.html) but I think I could do better.

Stay tuned ... !!

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
