The learning is still here, just everywhere.

At the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) people from around the world had the chance to look and explore thousands of tools that will be used at work, in homes, while in transit.  More than the Internet of Things (IoT) these technological wonders are being brought to market in a seamless manner to the end … Continue reading

It takes a team!

Recently I attended an Oireachtas, a very specialized Irish dance competition.  Usually the competitions, a feis, features individuals competing and there were individuals dancing here too however the focus of this event is on teams competing with very detailed and complex dances.  The Oireachtas occurs once a year so the challenge is to bring individuals … Continue reading

Life is but a game – right?

Did you see the USA Today article about potato chip maker Popchips marketing via mobile games?  Collaborating with Kiip (developer of smartphone apps) they created games that result in winning free bags of chips!  I wrote about gamification recently (It’s all fun and games until you lose…) and many of the articles focus on having … Continue reading
