Our Age of Anxiety is, in great part, the result of trying to do today’s jobs with yesterday’s tools! -- Marshall McLuhan To achieve effective, efficient knowledge base curation, we view knowledge as a flow of data--not as static information. Cultivating content for computer-facilitated environments such as e-business and content curators is a 24/7 endeavor that requires: Collaboration = cohesion between people Vision = our sights are set on the year 2020 Opportunity = your knowledge base + our insights and vision Our focus is on your existing knowledge base and how to turn that knowledge base into a sustainable income stream in the Global Village. We predict that the Industrial Park Business Model will give way completely to the Global Village Model by the year 2020. If we are right, the businesses and careers that were pinned to the Industrial Park will be mired in a faulty knowledge base with a dwindling income stream.
