16th February 2002 - Read ”Business @ the Speed of Thought"

I spent the past three days reading "Business @ the Speed of Thought" by Bill Gates.

Undoubtedly this book is highly relevant to anyone running an operation in the 21st century; the book covers many aspects of the information technological impact on companies. It describes how companies can benefit using IT for decision support, workflow optimization and knowledge management, essentially connecting the organization in a digital nervous system. Personally, I believe the only shortcomings of the book are issues of security and developing countries participation in the global information society.

The official homepage of Morten Middelfart and CALM. Computer Aided Leadership and Management (CALM) is an inspirational speculation on where mankind may be heading in the quest to leverage computer potentials for helping individuals and organizations to self-actualize their symbiotic potentials.

The time frame for this well-informed and provocative speculation on relatively near-term and more distant potentials is clearly within mankind's grasp. Dr. Middelfart argues persuasively that within the next one or two decades, symbiotic links with "intelligent machines" will surely leverage people's potentials, far beyond all human progress to date!

Altogether, a tour de force of well-informed contemporary insights and maturely reasoned speculation; affording possible stepping stones and a creative springboard for what may lie ahead. As has been said: "Man's reach should exceed his grasp; else what's a heaven for?”
