Phone Jacks, Netflix and the Benefit of Perspective

June 25, 2013 | Daniel Fogel | HCI

My curious 5 year old nephew was playing on the floor the other day, saw a phone jack at his eye level, and asked what it was.  As anyone with a small child knows, he plays with phones all the time but the concept of a phone that had to remain physically tethered into the wall made little sense to him.   The CDC recently published an eye opening study regarding telephone usage and found that shockingly approximately 30 million children live in homes with only wireless telephones and 35.8% of adults do not have a landline coming into their home.

March 29, 2013 | Daniel Fogel | HCI

Tim Sacket recently published a great article on the “Next Big Thing in HR” at Fistful of Talent.   He asserts that succession planning is about to surge back to the forefront due to a slowly recovering economy, which will lead to a continuing exodus of baby boomers finally entering retirement over the next few years.   Tim reviews the difficulties HR faces in tackling succession planning, budget constraints, the need to be ‘strategic’, and coordinating across both the function and structure of the entire organization, but also highlights the role technology can play to facilitate the process.
