Have we forgotten how to concentrate? - Times Online: "Have we forgotten how to concentrate?"
This is very relevant.. and it took me a while to find it on the timeswebsite.. it will be interesting to see if the link still works after the paywall comes up.
meanwhile, I just tweeted today about trigger happy blackberry fingers. and I remembered the article above ..
some of the tips copied below:
Tom Wujec: Build a tower, build a team | Video on TED.com
nice way to compare efficiencies of MBAs, CEOs, Architects and Kindergarten kids..
afraid to find out how I do. ..

peHUB � ZipCar Buys Streetcar
however, people still need to change their 'habit' and be 'educated' to pros & cons.. it will take time still.
but rolled up now, and enable people to travel with same account (guess that would be on the car) is the right choice and probably the only choice to get scale.
if it can launch in developing countries like China or India, that would be brilliant, but their aspirations would also need to be adjusted.

The Hontex Scandal: Now, It's KPMG's Turn | CFO innovation ASIA
Very interesting read.
good that KPMG whistle-blow themselves!
Danger in China & asia is that the perceived return of corruption and likely opportunity of 'making it rich' are truely once in a life time.. therefore, we need more transparency, reporting, and better 'medium' to 'longer' term opportunities, rather than short term ones.
Listing of chinese or asian companies are not also the best fit for some.. as 1.) company itself might not be transparent enough, due to what's been mentioned above. 2.) retail investors are also sometimes clueless as to what investing is all about, some in HK/China mostly buy shares based on 'tips' or purely on the recommendations by media/friends/taxi drivers... hence major review of 2009's IPOs: http://bit.ly/cSzpSu (where Martin was at our last CXO HK lunch in 2009)
may we live in interesting times.
