It is difficult to manage the volume of information. It is difficult to manage the quality of information. It is difficult to manage the fragmented flow of information.

The above all stem from the nature of the Internet; a venue where anyone can post anything.  Pretty much everyone is posting for clicks and everything can be found by a search engine whether good, bad or ugly.

The paradigm of free information has reduced the amount of real digging or insight provided by traditional publications.  This model has also brought about propagation of information, regardless of whether it is of high or low quality, to the point where it enters the realm of “if you say it enough it is true”.  At the end of the day information is losing its value.


WHAT ABOUT TECHNOLOGY? IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN AND ALWAYS WILL BE A PART OF SOCIETY. It’s only constant though is its continual evolution.

Technology adds a new dimension because, well, there is now a technical component. One should have some understanding of the field, the background and the context of any information they are digesting. Decisions around technology should not be about gambling they should be about understanding, because it is understandable. This is where ned enters the picture.



Whether it is “ball parking” a technology, seeing who or what else is in the eco-system, or looking in depth at what differentiates a technology, ned goes beyond the corporate pitch.


If you are drafting or licensing a patent your client can be better served when you have a better grasp of technology, allowing you to look forward, seeing how technology is evolving.


An understanding of your client’s business is at the heart of management consulting. If it is a technology based company you have to get a grip on the technology. ned can help you get that grip.
