The Networked Idealist's AdvantageStrategy & Leadership
Eli Singer, Alex Lowy, Phil Hood
A new type of innovator is revolutionizing marketplaces around the world. Called networked idealists (NIs), they combine the rascal-like idealism of Robin Hood with the network-based business models of early internet businesses like Priceline and Netscape. These innovators are initially non-profit entrepreneurs who develop organic, cellular, distributed network structures to accomplish their work. They use financial, transportation and communications networks in novel ways to circumvent normal barriers to market entry. With the proliferation of networks, networked idealism is on the rise. Even networks that seem relatively benign – PayPal, GPS, Wi-Fi – may soon serve as launching pads for some new NI business assault.
Are gamer employees different? This is the question John Beck and Mitchell Wade answer in Got Game, How the Gamer Generation is Reshaping Business Forever. They argue that yes, employees who grew up with Nintendo, TurboGrafix and Genesis approach their work in fundamentally different ways than non-gaming workers. If you grew up with games, you can use this book to teach your boss how to appreciate your gaming abilities in the workplace.
The Naked CorporationSlashdot.org
The web is stripping away the layers of insulation between companies and the public by giving everyday people access to massive amounts of information. Increasingly companies are finding themselves like the emperor naked and exposed. Don Tapscott, long time tech author ( Digital Capital , Growing Up Digital and Paradigm Shift ), and co-author David Ticoll ( Digital Capital ) say in their latest book, The Naked Corporation: How The Age of Transparency will Revolutionize Business , that when a corporation is naked, it is best to be buff.
