Bioteams, collaboration and the Mobile Cloud

I was part of a fascinating panel session "Mobility, Teams, The Cloud and Collaboration" at the recent Mobile Cloud Summit (London: 21 September). The summit and the session was chaired by Jeffrey Peel of Quadriga Consulting and my co-panelists were Brian Caulfield of DFJ Esprit and Chris Horn of Movirtu.

My interest in the mobile cloud is just how strongly it resonates with bioteam principles and how extending collaboration to the smart phone, which is now a natural extension of the human body, significantly opens up virtual teams beyond remote workers to mobile (as in "on-the-move") workers for whom constantly using a laptop is just not convenient given their daily work patterns.

The Mobile Cloud might just be the tipping point which brings mobile collaboration from the margins right into the business mainstream by enabling an 'always on' connection with each team member no matter where they are!

Mobile phone users: are we now cyborgs

Mobile phone users: are we now cyborgs

The term cyborg is used to designate an organism which is a mixture of organic and synthetic parts so designed to enhance its abilities via technology. William Mitchell a professor at MIT Media Lab believes that through our mobile devices we are all becoming mobile cyborgs and its for the better. In his book Me++: The Cyborg Self and the Networked City which he discusses in an interview with James Harkin Mitchell describes how the new communications technologies have overlaid our city spaces with central nervous systems connecting us into the wireless ether via our mobile devices which act as umbilical cords to anchor us into the information society's digital infrastructure.
