The Transformative Impact of Technologies in the Workplace →

It used to be that innovation went top-down, from the public sector —whether military or universities— to industries and corporations to finally reach the consumer.
The trend is now reversing. Your personal smartphone is more powerful than the one provided by your company. And there are chances that the laptop you possess is also more powerful than the one sitting on your work desk.


The iPhone and Facebook —to only quote the two most obvious choices— did shape your behavior. The foundation of your current software use skillset was impacted by that glass screen and the apps you play with. Your Facebook time did shape your vision of online interactions (e.g. the etiquette, the behaviors), but also the social experience through a screen (e.g. the UX/UI).

Facebook Friend Risk →

One cannot hide from another Friend list. It’s a decision that isn’t taken by third parties. For instance, having a public profile myself, everyone can see who is linked with me on Facebook. I’m okay with it, but I don’t know about every single one of my connections.
