Olympic-size woes and the dark side of tech innovation

Karen Goulart Karen Goulart Profile: Karen Goulart

Can you believe what a disappointment these games are turning out to be? Oh, we’re not talking about the Olympics. We’re referring of course to Zynga’s recent woes. Yes, in life, as in the Olympics, there are winners and there are losers. In this week’s roundup we catch up with a few former tech world superstars who won’t be up on a podium any time soon. Also up: the dark (Hat) side of tech innovation, some truly heroic leadership lessons and more.

Zynga may want to have a word with friends. Opinion is rife that Facebook doesn’t have the company’s best interests at heart.

We now know one outlet where BlackBerry users won’t be reading more bad news for RIM.

Where there’s money, there are criminals. Hot on the heels of tech innovation that makes your smartphone a virtual wallet comes a tech innovation that virtually steals that wallet.

Who doesn’t like a good chart? We especially like this one which attempts to diagram the main routes to unified information access (UIA) across silos when dealing with big data.

Finally, be sure to check out this week’s CIO Matters, wherein our crusading columnist Wendy Schuchart saves the day with awesomely powerful leadership lessons CIOs can glean from superheroes. Kapow!
