Social Entrepreneurship – the New Batman
Thu, Apr 23rd 2015 3:38p   Colleen Burns
Ask any Austinite what one of the biggest problems is in the city right now and the answer will likely be the same: growth. Traffic, cost of living or running a business, new construction – all of these issues are swelling at an overwhelming rate. Locals are moving because they can no longer afford the city, businesses are closing to make way for new condos, and the quirky “keep Austin weird” culture is slowly getting a bit more normal. For better or worse, Austin i

How Enterprise Companies Can Use P2P Marketplaces
Thu, Apr 16th 2015 3:25p   Colleen Burns
Peer-to-peer is the act of two people or entities exchanging resources with one another. The internet is making peer-to-peer easier by acting as a matchmaker. The nimble technology allows for connecting and the growth of social media has prepared online users to engage with one another deeper than they ever have, first with information and now with physical items or services. For example, Airbnb is a matchmaker. They connect hosts and guests all over the world. The future of business is t

My #NewWayToWork Futurist Thoughts…
Wed, Apr 15th 2015 7:09a   Colleen Burns
Recently I had the good fortune to participate in an IBM and PureMatter Thinkathon of futurists to discuss the future of work. I’ve long thought being a futurist is just about the best job out there other than weatherman mainly because you could predict the future without worrying if you were right or wrong, because people would forget your predictions or not be around long enough to see if they failed to come true! As you’ll see in this video I was asked the following

Meet Chelsea, Millennial Expert, who at only 23 years-old is an accomplished speaker, published author, television talk show host, radio show host, and certified health coach.

Life Hacks: Startup Tips from Entrepreneurs
Thu, Apr 9th 2015 2:06p   Colleen Burns
The month of April has always been the perfect time for renewal and fresh starts. I feel energized … The air is crisp, plants are vibrant and not even the perfect combo of blankets and Netflix can convince me to stay indoors. As such, the theme of this month’s IBM Life Hacks will mirror this energy by focusing on young, motivated entrepreneurs. If you read my last post “Gen Y Entrepreneurs Show Us a New Way to Startup,” then you are familiar with I

Big Data & Analytics in Recruiting & Learning #NewWayToWork
Wed, Apr 8th 2015 2:26p   Colleen Burns
Big data and analytics are just beginning to be tapped for recruiting and learning, but their future growth will depend on HR practitioners’ understanding of what big data and analytics can do for them, their willingness to use the data to make decisions and change behavior, and agreement around privacy and ethical use of this information. The overarching technical enabling factors are artificial intelligence (AI) and semantic search, which can now make sense of written and quali

Get Big Things Done: The Power of Connectional Intelligence
Tue, Apr 7th 2015 10:49a   Colleen Burns
We’ve been living with the internet now for twenty years and it's not news that we're all connected. The question is: How do you and I grab hold of this connectivity to take us to the places we want to go? At a time when old-fashioned routes to power – the schools you went to, the contacts in your address book, the families you were born into – are not the only ways to get ahead, how do we connect intelligently – e.g. better, faster, more efficient

Sean House – 4.74 Degrees of Separation
Wed, Apr 1st 2015 3:03p   Colleen Burns
With a network of 500+ members, it’s not easy for an IBM Connections power user like Sean House to select a single individual who stood out in terms of impacting him and his work at the company. After learning that Laura Ketner had kicked off the 4.74 Degrees series by naming him as one of the most important people she’d met through Connections, however, he was jolted into doing just that … and one name truly did jump out at him.
