Bioteams, collaboration and the Mobile Cloud

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!

Bioteams Books Reviews
If you think that there is not much human teams can learn from nature think again! Temple Grandin in her amazing book Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior (p303-307) puts forward the incredible theory that early humans only became today’s successful homo sapiens because they learned to act and think like the wolves they co-habited with.
