With a severe liquidity squeeze and a withered initial public offering (IPO) market, the venture capital industry and entrepreneurs face incredible challenges.

Judy, serial entrepreneur and former chief technology officer of Cisco, was referring to the ecosystem comprising venture capitalists, investment bankers, universities, entrepreneurs, scientists, customers and others that has launched scores of innovative and profitable companies ...

PebbleRoad: The culture of collaboration and what it means for ...
Many organisations are waking up to the fact that collaboration is a key piece of the intranet puzzle. I have spoken to many such people in charge of collaboration in their organisations and what puzzles me in turn is their lack of understanding of the culture of collaboration. Let me explain. Wikipedia defines culture as: "[t]he set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterises an institution, organisation or group". This basically means that the organisation has a preferred way of working, and this acts like a magnet, and this pulls all other parts towards it. For example, a bureaucratic ... market research, surveys and trends

The Culture of Collaboration: Business Models
Videoconferencing and telepresence vendors have traditionally marketed their products as a replacement for travel. This is shortsighted in that real value creation comes from integrating real-time video into business processes. Using telepresence so that people can come together spontaneously and design an airplane or develop animation or create a 24-hour healthcare delivery service produces far greater value than travel savings.   Considering the obsession with marketing real-time video as a travel replacement, you might think hotels would be lukewarm about videoconferencing and telepresence. But there was nothing tepid ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

New CDs
Many of the songs on “Laws of Illusion,” Sarah McLachlan’s new album, end with her virtually by herself: just her voice and a minimum of accompaniment, alone in a quiet place. “Laws of Illusion” is Ms. McLachlan’s first album of new songs in seven years, and her first since the dissolution of her 11-year marriage to her band’s drummer, Ashwin Sood; they separated in 2008. The new album’s songs revolve around breaking up: the tension, the denial, the failed reconciliations, the anger, the reckoning, the aftermath. Titles tell the story: “Illusions of Bliss,” ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
