LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, mashups, blogs... Web 2.0 technology facilitates and encourages online collaboration and knowledge-sharing. Inherently social and collaborative, web 2.0 has tremendous potential to support and drive the innovation process. Researchers from Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School joined forces with Flanders DC to identify the prerequisites for success. We are living in a knowledge society.

the 1995 Summer Solstice Parade. This would have been before this had become an established tradition; at this time the police were still hassling naked cyclists in the parade. The Solstice Cyclists (also known as The Painted [Naked] Cyclists of the Solstice Parade , or The Painted Cyclists ) is an artistic, non-political, clothing-optional bike ride celebrating the spirit of the Summer Solstice , and which constitutes an unofficial start for the Summer Solstice Parade & Pageant , an event produced by the Fremont Arts Council in the Fremont district of Seattle . The loosely organized event was originally started by streakers who ...
riding the hype cycle
We’ve always been mildly allergic to the reductive matrices, models and quadrants peddled by the analysts, but we’ve come to recognise a ring of truth to the Gartner Hype Cycle . The Hype Cycle maps a curve that describes the way new technologies become adopted by the marketplace over time. Few companies actually ride the entire curve. Rather, the curve describes the trajectory of a technology. Companies tend to enter and fall off the curve as time passes. Only the biggest (with the deepest pockets and the most diversified product portfolio) usually ride the entire length. Gartner has named the five parts of the ... market research, surveys and trends
SOA after the hype
space have become at least buzz word compliant with SOA. The initial hype phase, characterized by a certain "irrational exuberance" and everybody rushing to offer an enterprise service bus (ESB) has passed and developers and architects are actually implementing SOA. To get an idea of where SOA is after the hype phase, we asked a group of analysts and thought leaders where they see it now. Riding the hype cycle: Gartner's view Roy Schulte is a vice president and Distinguished Analyst at Gartner Research The vendor hype favoring SOA is still pretty high, but it is now being countered by a significant amount of ... market research, surveys and trends

Let’s face it, nothing changes as quickly in a more pervasive way than technology.  Change has become a core competence for many IT service and solution providers, although the true master change agents have become the Managed Service Providers (MSPs).  They’ve risked life and limb to change the traditional Value-added Reseller (VAR) business model, they’ve changed their sales approach, and in some cases, their logo and brand.  As we wrap up last week’s Ingram Micro’s Cloud Summit and Seismic Partner Conference, I witnessed them embrace yet another new approach – the role of CIO. Becoming a CIO to small and midsized business ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

CHAIN REACTION: An improved offering for female cyclists
Bex Hopkins, editor of Bike and former DH and XC MTB racer, shares her thoughts on how far female cyclist-friendly gear has come, and why there is still some way to go... In the early ‘90s women just made do with small sizes of men’s gear. That included bikes as well as clothing; we didn’t really have much choice. Any female-specific gear we had was hard to source and usually picked up on our travels to the USA, or we’d tailor men’s gear to fit. It must be said that we didn’t exactly look great in this gear, or very feminine. Short or petite women had almost no choice at all. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What's up with the bike helmet craze these days? - Yahoo! Answers
When my parents were kids, they never wore helmets when riding their bikes. But nowadays most parents make their kids wear them. I'm 17, and I don't wear one anymore, but my parents made me when I was younger. I hated that thing. It was so uncomfortable and awkward. Are these things really necessary, or is it a result of media hype? Nobody wore them in their days (80's). 1 month ago Answerer 1 Brei Would you play organized football with out a helmet, how about Lacrosse, baseball, hockey, how about ride a motorcycle?
