I had a great meeting yesterday with Thomas Madsen-Mygdal founder of the excellent Reboot conference and serial entrepreneur. He and a couple his collaborators showed me their latest stuff and it was a lot of fun.
One tiny detail made me laugh out loud. You probably know that quote about the future being here but not evenly distributed; I also think our acknowledgement of the speed of change is like that… we can go for months taking it all for granted, and then in a moment we’re suddenly surprised at how far we’ve come in such a short space of time. For instance, when I suddenly recall that growing up, my parents had to book a telephone call to relations in America several days ahead, and it cost a fortune. And now I just take Skype chats for granted.
Anyhow, yesterday was one of those moments. It was triggered by seeing this button:
Hoist comes with lots of simple apps to add functionality… so you can set up a space and very quickly organise loads of stuff. For instance, you can just click a button to add CRM.
Just a few years ago, all this functionality was only available to big corporations. Now anyone can have it. As I’ve said before, a lot of the best technology is easier to use if you’re outside a corporate firewall.
And if dinosaur organisations aren’t delivering? Well creating a new organisation to challenge them starts with just a click.
