One of the biggest company transformations I’ve seen in all my years as an industry analyst is Vonage, which held its inaugural industry analyst event in Scottsdale, Ariz., last week.
Back in the 12th century – way, way before the Internet – the great Jewish thinker, Maimonides wrote his most famous work, The Guide for the Perplexed. I’ve tried reading it, but like Joyce’s Ulysses, it’s too dense and cryptic for all but the most studious readers. That said, from my Jewish education, I at least know that what the perplexed among us need is a better understanding of the relationship between religion and philosophy. Messy stuff – then and now – and I’m kind of feeling the same way lately about the relationship between communication and collaboration.
