Privvy Awards 2007 – The Bug
This is actually old news from 2007. It’s about ‘The Bug, why didn’t I post on this before?

I guess I should read that book that’s been sitting on my shelf for the last 5 years…. you know the book that has IP v6 on the title 😉

It is good to see that what I have been thinking about, i.e. the dynamics of how businesses work based on the old scientific theories just don’t work anymore. It ties in well to what I have been researching, globalisation of communication. In my book I have written mainly about the social networking space and how to take control of your identity, and of course a whole load of other stuff too. However I have not linked this into the business context….
