As the lone Australia SCIP attendee in Chicago this year I am presenting some key interest I picked up at the SCIP conference in back to a few SCIP members in Australia next Tuesday and am looking to use a few slides from some presentation of interest. I was hoping to use a few of your slides from you presentation on "Online Social Networking and the 2 CI's" - basically the slides on Facebook, Twitter, LikedIn (not the detailed dive) and Ning. I found it really interesting and I think other down here in Oz will as well. Of course I will reference you on each slide. Let me know if this is ok with you?
Hi, Bob, I got your book "Competitive Intelligence: Fast, Cheap & Ethical" today! Thank you very much.The book looks neat. I will go through it in the next few days and come back to you for discussion maybe =)
Dear Rob, very good to get your mail and thank you for that. Just wondering what a Canadian (if indeed you are one) is doing studying at Unisa? And do you find it worth your while? Have you visited here? I always over qualify my country or rather over contextualise. It's great in terms of nature, space and climate. Great for starting up business, filled with incredible opportunities and a business environment that in comparison to many other more developed economies, is easy to do business in. Not so overregulated as in so many EU and other countries. Being a fledgling democracy it is a rather schiz type of environment. Lots of racial and class sorting out to do in this transforming society. We're very fast to criticise and point fingers and cast our eyes upward in exasperation but it sure is a life that keeps us 'cutting edge,' having to innovate to prosper, the need to plan all the time and never being sure about anything. The only thing that I really think 'about this I need to hold my breath' is the ecomic policy going into the future. It's a lengthy subject so suffice to say at this point, there are many citizens that have their luggage packed for ostensibly better shores. Tell me a little about yourself?
O yes, IBIS is 'interesting.' Busy with so many CI things, very small but every day is filled with new things.
