Randy Nelson: One of the things that we do at Pixar and I know some things about Pixar uhm ... is we use improv as a mechanism of helping with collaboration. And in that, two core principles of improv have always guided us. The first is, accept every offer. So if an improv, improviser says to you, "Gee it's funny. It's raining a lot in here today."
Welcome to the Gig Life. The boom in independent work is changing the way we think about jobs and careers. Does Washington get it? It's been called the Gig Economy, Freelance Nation, the Rise of the Creative Class, and the e-conomy, with the "e" standing for electronic, entrepreneurial, or perhaps eclectic.
Some 4,000 commuters travel to and from New York City by air for work — part of a tiny but rapidly growing group of super super-commuters. The most recent census numbers show several thousand commute to work by plane each week, enabled by technology and fueled by economic necessity. In census data from a decade ago, this phenomenon was undetectable.

Virtual businesses set to grow, but what are the implications for business banking? | Asian Banking & FinanceA report released this month by Cushman & Wakefield property consultants found that Asia is in the midst of a boom in business office rents. Among the findings in the report were that rents for prime business office space in Beijing rose 75% last year and notes that this was the highest increase of any city in the world in 2011. Other Asian cities also experienced similar inflation in business office rents with Hong Kong continuing to be the number one city globally for the most expensive city for office space in terms of total occupancy. I believe that the continued increase in office accommodation rents is likely to become a significant catalyst for fuelling the growth of Virtual Businesses. The virtual business model avoids the heavy overheads of business office accommodation.

When I started as an assistant professor, back in 2004, and I joined the NYU/Stern Business School, I got into a strange position. I had funding to spend, but no students to work with. I had work to be done (mainly writing crawlers) that was time-consuming, but not particularly novel, or intellectually rewarding.
by Leonard A. Schlesinger, Charles F. Kiefer, and Paul B. Brown | 9:29 AM May 29, 2012 It would be nice to think that you're going to be just as excited about going to work tomorrow as you were on your first day on the job.
Hank Aaron breaks Babe Ruth's record for career home runs as he hits No. 715 at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium on April 8, 1974, on his way to a career 755 home runs. Research suggests that in a wide variety of professions, including collegiate and professional sports, a small but significant number of individuals perform exceedingly well and the rest of individuals' performance trails off. For decades, teachers, managers and parents have assumed that the performance of students and employees fits what's known as the bell curve — in most activities, we expect a few people to be very good, a few people to be very bad and most people to be average.
This is an excerpt from my upcoming book, Social Media: Add Power to Your Innovation Efforts, which is due this fall. Using social media internally for innovation can help lay the groundwork for taking your initiative to an external audience. The platform of choice for doing this for many businesses is Yammer, a popular social media platform that sets up private, secure enterprise social networks that can be used to drive innovation, especially idea generation/development within their company. I will be using Yammer as an example throughout this blog post due to it’s popularity and since the advice I put forth work equally well for other kinds of social media tools and services used internally. It can be fairly easy to recruit people for the Yammer platform. It is, however, much more difficult to keep the users engaged over time.
by Tony Schwartz | 8:53 AM March 14, 2012 Why is it that between 25% and 50% of people report feeling overwhelmed or burned out at work ?

What we've lost, above all, are stopping points, finish lines and boundaries. Technology has blurred them beyond recognition.
