I have wanted to meet JP Rangaswami for well over a year. He is a man who is intimately connected with the way the world of work, education and leisure are moving. He has opinions and insights which are hugely valuable as we struggle to get to grips with the changes around us. He's CIO at investment bank Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein (DrKW) and he's now blogging.
Let me quote from his 'About me':
"I’m passionate about work (!) , particularly with reference to how work is changing: the paradigms created by globalisation, disintermediation and the web; the implications of virtualisation, service orientation and commoditisation; why publishing and search and fulfilment and conversation are the only “applications” we may need; how telephony becoming software and the wireless internet interact with mobile devices; the terrors of poorly thought out IPR and DRM; the need to avoid walled gardens of my own making; how children now teach me about work; the socialising of information, how it creates value by being shared, how it is enriched, how it is corrupted. How information behaves and what I can learn from it."
Get the picture?
He's gone straight into my 'must read' category.
