You might not have noticed but we collaborate a lot here.

It’s a phrase I hear often and then when I have a look or try to notice. I find that folk are very much isolated in their own place.  This is my work , on my desktop so I can get it quickly.

So lets put this in a shared place. Deep deep down in a folder structure that one can’t remember.

I don’t think it matters really. No one is collaborating really.  An item is shoved around as an idea in a document up and down the line. Within the corporate chain.

What is the secret ?  What is the will to collaborate. It starts with a Team yes?

So many years involved in trying to get people to share. It doesn’t work .  I am looking for clues. I see glimpses.

In a medical world you may work as part of a research team and the authors and all the team are acknowledged as part of this paper this work.

This is part of it I think, being noticed, being acknowledged.

Often the case is one person does it. The collaboration is not seen, or even does.

So yes I have not noticed.  I continue to try and get to this.

Occasionally it is close . Shared co authoring reports, a shared site with external parties working on a project.

I think I just keep on hoping that someone notices that I am actually trying to facilitate collboration so it can be noticed.


“Yes we do collaboration around here”

Vinyl again….resistance is futile

All I can say is wow. The customer has protested me thinks and has affected the system yet again. This time in a reaction to all the streaming or the stealing or CD’s too easy to copy. Vinyl is making a comeback. I’m resisting still I don’t want to change the record turn it over. My days of pondering the record cover is gone. I can get all the info I need online.

No I don’t want to recreate the collection . When I buy can I please have the option to buy FLAC files.  Can this be another channel to release the music to me.

I have never liked MP3 streaming and the Spotify world of streaming. I have found a haven in .  Pay for listening by donation . I love it . Lossless files streamed to me and I never know what’s next . Like Radio used to do I hear something I like I go find it.

So from a wee tiny voice let me buy FLAC files if CD’s are dead let me have the choice. I am so loathed to collect large records again.

Let the buyer have choice
