On this website I write about the subjects that I am dealing with in my work. As an independent consultant I am often employed as program manager for large projects in on the threshold between science, business and society. Technology, human factors and the impact of Internet are my focus.
I believe that technology is changing our society in more ways than we can imagine. And I think that this change is a positive one where people can make a difference based on what they have to offer instead of the role they occupy. A world where all the intelligence available is used and where people are motivated to make their contribution because they are awarded for it. Many of the successful examples of social software come from the public domain like wikipedia and open source. It is exciting to see how people are putting in their best effort without getting any pay and without any pressure. Since most people spend more than 50% of time while they are awake at work, wouldn’t it be great if this same kind of motivation is felt in the workplace?
Technology is not a goal but a means. Therefore my special interest is not so much in the technology as such but much more in how we as people use technology to create meaning.
iCrowds is the term that I use for crowds cooperating successfully together and thereby being more than just a bunch of individuals. The name symbolizes the connection between the “I” and the crowds since the emphasis is on the interaction between the individual and the group as well as the intelligence of the crowds
