Vivek Badrinath, the new chief executive of Orange Business Services, dropped by the bloggers boiler room at Orange Business Live in Amsterdam to meet the team that's been blogging live from the event. He's been impressed by the buzz created by team that included Orange's own Rob Evans and Yann Gourvennec, and stars of Europe's social media blogosphere. Vivek shared with us his belief that social media and social computing is completely changing the business environment.
I've been writing about technology for nearly 20 years, including editing industry magazines Connect and Communications International. In 2002 I co-founded Futurity Media with Anthony Plewes. My focus in Futurity Media is in emerging technologies, social media and future gazing. As a graduate of philosophy & science, I have studied futurology & foresight to the post-grad level.
