I was browsing and came across a post from Liz, who participates regularly in @lollydaskal 's tweet chat #leadfromwithin. Browsing, post, @person, #subject all less than 10 years old.

Are we becoming dumber as ar result of omnipresence of Internet as some posit or is that just true for "the masses"? I also see tribes of really smart people organizing themselves in several tribes, where they get extremely accelerated learning and become much smarter faster than they ever could have in a non-connected world.
I was doing some work for a client in the Bay Area this week. We had a blast together and I was again humbled by how well the human process technology we have developed over the years worked. I continue to be amazed at how little we learn about how to work together effectively and how this stuff that is initially is perceived as "fluffly" rarely fails to deliver better results (not mention more fun) than traditional ways of meeting.
I got up at 4:45. I had a call at 5 with a partner in NYC and the CEO of a company, who was in Holland. We talked in a three way, crystal clear conference call on Skype. I was in the lobby, sipping coffee and talking on my iPhone. All for free. I am getting old! I marvel at this stuff. I can still remember the static and delay on a call between the US and Holland not so long ago as well as the $ 9.50 per minute price tag...
Off to the airport in a bit for a slow week with my family. I'll miss the weather and the customer service. Enjoy your weekends!
