Career Advise – Listen to the Wisdom of the Linkedin Crowd – Big Data and Hr

January 17, 2013

Who is more likely to become the next CEO in a company – the CFO, the COO or the CIO ?

Well, ask the Linkedin crowd. There are now more than 200 Million Profiles on Linkedin and even most of the Senior Executives of the Fortune 500 companies have setup their profile. Now is the time to use the wisdom of the Linkedin crowd and start planning your career.

Of the current CEOs on Linkedin:
No.1: 110 000 have been the CIO in the past
No.2: 46 100 were the CFO in the past and
No.3: 37 400 had the COO Role in the past.

Well, guess what you might want to consider studying before going for your MBA or EMBA ?

Lately there has been a lot of research on crowd wisdom or swarm intelligence.
And it is a key source for great insights and forecasts. Just lately the swarm intelligence research of Peter Gloor MIT helped to predict correctly the outcome of the US presidential election in 2012.

The Linkedin Crowd will also tell you what university or business school to choose if you aspire to be the next CIO, CFO or COO….

What else would you like to ask the Linkedin Crowd ? Leave a comment and I will ask the Linkedin crowd for the answer…

Gotthard tunnel traffic updates – the smart blog post

May 31, 2012

Live traffic updates: Gotthard tunnel traffic update

Everyone talks about smart phones today. What about smart blog posts ?
I am just testing this new idea of intelligent blog posts on ppalme.blogspot.com.

It is not just a post on a blog with text and pictures.Iit also contains small little widgets.
One widget for example  is showing all the twitter tweets with the hashtag #Gotthardtunnel.

Additionally it displays  live webcams along the way and has a link to the google traffic map showing the area of the
Gotthard tunnel motorway A2.

Blog posts are easy to display on smart phones and won´t require any apps programming and downloading for the end user.  So drivers can easily get an update on how the traffic flow is towards the Gotthard tunnel and away.
Other drivers can use the hastag #Gotthardtunnel to update on the traffic along the way.

I can add at any time more and more  intelligence to the blog post as I go along.

I just did. Now it includes a google news rss feed on the latest news on the Gotthard tunnel.

Please see my example : Gotthard tunnel traffic update
