Effective communication has to be two way and it has to be instantaneous. Excel spreadsheets, SMS, email, these are all great tools but in isolation from other users who also need to view the information they suffer from being "Data Silos" invisible to those who most need visibility and are non reportable as a whole.Read More
Refrigeration and freezing have been in use since the first ancestor stumbled across a frozen Mammoth and found it good.

Birth, Growth, Maturity, decline, death. The paradigm of life is echoed in thousands of systems we have created. democracy, Capitalism, Life insurance, they all mimic the natural cycle so it should come as no surprise that all these systems are flawed.
