“(1)”

It is cold today, yet there exist warmth within the gentle snow as it lands on a tree and thoughts of "(1)" and history echo into the net. History need not repeat. Wisdom within it however must be carried forward as it is possible that history can be re-built,...

As this space suggests, FUN, is important. Ideally at least a few visit the space and then join in the fun associated with TechTarget including ITKE. The growing realization that "Fun" is important is showing in...

Thinking about the value of collaboration

Ron Richard Profile: Ron Richard

Is doing more with less, part of the simplicity mantra? Can you drive growth by thinking about the value of collaboration, and how collaboration and collaboration technologies can help do more with less? To answer these questions perhaps first do a bit of exploration. For example perhaps watch a...

Interconnected, we become one collective intrinsic and pervasive kindred spirit

Ron Richard Profile: Ron Richard

All people which together form the universal software, technology and information community and profession, should intrinsically (and increasingly) be a kindred spirit. Particularly given that the same may eventually (moving upwards and inwards in an open-minded forward thinking direction) more so...

Create a bright future

Ron Richard Profile: Ron Richard

Every thought we think is creating our future (Hay), so why not create a positive future. As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of being (Jung), so why not light up the future. Life is about creating yourself (Shaw), so why not create a...

Love, peace, and happiness are ingredients; however, simply stated quality is joy

Ron Richard Profile: Ron Richard

Love, peace, and happiness are ingredients; however, simply stated quality is joy associated with a mindset that seeks to embed value and excellence within people, processes and products. Innately the quality trek through the sea, sky and interconnected universe is an individual journey that is...

Intelligent collaboration may have a connection to some degree to the advances or social pioneering conducted by intelligence agencies. There may even be some relation to evolving collaboration, or to evolving concepts of quality control (aka detection) and quality assurance (aka prevention), or to...

After years of digging, sharing and dialogues with friends, this post has emerged. Hopefully it somehow contributes toward further evolving quality and value, and rebuilding the capacity for intelligent collaboration. What is intelligent collaboration? Perhaps it is all which has the potential...

Thinking about the value of unified communications

Ron Richard Profile: Ron Richard

It may be interesting to think about the value inherent to all that may relate to the concept of unification. At minimum you may like to do some thinking about the value of unification as it specifically relates to unified communications.  To do so you may like to visit this new site,

Quality and value are two of the forces that shape as well as are emergent from the architecture of a software-intensive system. Interestingly, these factors — quality and value — appear to be consistent with architectural elegance and simplicity.  Grady...

Quality Decisions, Dimensions and Life… 100 years from now

Ron Richard Profile: Ron Richard

I'm thinking of the circles and waves of quality and value inherent within the past and present. I'm thinking of the levels and dimensions of quality and value that continually need to move upwards and inwards by and beyond 2020 (e.g., by 2050 or 2058, or by 2100 or 2108 and so on). Start...
