Rock Paper Scissors for Digital Business. What?
Looking deeper into legislative, consumer and technology trends, I see the challenges for the post-digital organization as: Privacy, Ownership and Persistence. 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' provides a handy metaphor to describe the challenges faced by post-digital businesses.
I will never think of Rock Paper Scissors the same way again.
whoah. I always looked at it from investors (rock) and companies (scissors) beating up on customers and every once in a while paper covers rock in shareholder revolts or gives the company a papercut in customer service revolts.
Adam, some thoughts... I've never forgiven Delicious for throwing away all my bookmarks (I guess I was clumsy enough to forget to download them), I downloaded my stuff before Dopplr decided to just give up on their service.
Now I am investing quite a lot of time building a repository of content in Panda Whale (which I love for so many reasons), I use it as the hub of activity to push out to Twitter https://twitter.com/mo_data and Linked In (I'd be really happy with a button for that too). Not sure how much traffic comes back to the site (I'd like to see that too).
I don't want Panda Whale to waddle/swim away - but just in case, I would really like to pull grab all this content I am bookmarking. Not a very 'Social Media' kind of thing, more a wierdo librarian thing, but I'd like some notion of persistence.
Love to hear what you think.
