22nd December 2002 - When the website gets a life of its own

During the past weeks I have been working hard to complete the paper on Business Analytics. While I was doing this, I suddenly received an email from Peter Urs Bender!

Needless to say I was quite honored that he took the time to comment on the work I had been doing on my website, but it also made me reflect on the power of the internet.

Since the launch of this academic website exactly 11 months ago, more than 3.800 individuals from 103 different countries have been visiting my site which in terms of clicks accounts for more than 18.000 hits. The fact that so many people have taken an interest of some sort in what is going on, and that great authors like Peter Urs Bender drops by and comments on my work has been truly inspiring and encouraging.

I could not think of anything else in the world that has the same energy and dynamics than the internet - and the biggest thrill is when it starts getting a life of its own by giving back from directions that no one could have anticipated.

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?
