Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

all you need to know is what others use


Christmas has come-and-gone. However, what remains are on-going decisions relative to technology acquisitions.

Is it a new computer, or the iPad?

That’s simply short-term thinking around new toys.

However, here, yes right here, is is your peek into the reality relative to what’s to come (this will be affecting trends, and the stock market)…

At some point, workers – such as journalists and accountants, will remain tethered to PC’s (the generic terms for desktop or laptop computers) because they create some and various forms of information, while decision makers – like executives, will primarily use mobile technology represented by iPads and Tablets because they mostly care about information, and the leveraging of it (they use information).

So… who’s leading this trend? Follow the money. Then think in terms of convergence.

Soon… Look for my continued thinking around “video anywhere”, “Apple”, “Fiber”, “Data Centers”, and “Venture Capital”.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

    Brian, I’d like to hear your thoughts beyond your statement, “…like executives, will primarily use mobile technology represented by iPads and Tablets because they mostly care about information, and the leveraging of it (they use information).” It seems to me, content generation has become a huge (if not THE) value proposition in our world. What is the value proposition of merely “using information?” Even those who have gotten so high up in the organization or so wealthy that they can live outside “the grid” comfortably need to create information to stay connected.

    Maybe I’ve been around technology too long and my worldview is skewed, but, to me, those who sit in their ivory towers without contributing to the body of knowledge and wisdom that is moving us to the next evolutionary level have gone the way of the dinosaur. As non-contributors, these folks do not deserve to recieve the HUGE compensation packages they now receive.

    My 2 cents worth…

    Hello Judy.

    Maybe the differentiator is: “pushing” and pulling. And, they key descriptors are: “Workers” and “Executives”.

    And, I am more focused on the immediate function of the technology. Desktops, with their large screens and keyboards are better suited for the creation of content. And, mobile devices like an iPad are better for viewing that which is created and it’s utilization from a decision-making standpoint.

    So, I’ll not reduce the import of content, here. I’ll join you in acknowledging it’s critical nature. My focus is on who uses what for that contents proliferation.

    This also makes me think I want to post about the “texting generation” (thirty and under), as opposed to the “email generation” (you and me). For those that have come into business with the availability of text, using a desktop is like texting on a suitcase. So, that perspective will change everything further.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
