I have spent the last few days in Melbourne, Australia.
The days with academics in the University and some of the world’s top CEO’s of software companies was a refreshing experience.
Who is a digital native? Most likely your children and Gen Y’s.
Digital Immigrants – needless to say it is more about people in their 40’s and above.
It was an interesting debate.
The Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister of Victoria made 4 important points:
- Solution Pull is always more effective than Technology push. It is about soultions not how great the technology is.
- It is always the simple things that win in the market place.
- All it requires is to work till we exceed the threshold to get success such as Hotmail.
- User interfaces and learner needs are more important than the features of your product. The business world here is buzzing with several new initiatives despite the elections here.
