CIOs Phil Komarny and Tom Catalini are social CIOs and in two must read blog posts recently explained how Twitter and blogging have helped them in their jobs and broadened their horizons.

I saw a speech by a Google exec covered in a couple of places, advising CIOs to get ready for BYOW - Bring Your Own Wearables.

Puleez! This is what we in the newspaper biz call a toothless story. How, may I ask, do CIO prepare when they don't what products to prepare for?

This may come as a shock, but CIOs are introverts.

This obvious but interesting conclusion is from a new study from the Berlin-based European School of Management and Technology, according to a story in Computerworld UK. I could not find the study at ESMT's web site, but it did point to the Computerworld UK story.

Using Cell Phone Spy Software to Track a Cell Phone

Blog-post by,

With involvement in the technology, gadgets are becoming easily available to people of every group including children. Due to ease of availability and less cost, parents allow their children to use Cell Phones, but they often ignore the activities their children do. They think that by giving a cell phone to their children, all their responsibilities are done, being good parents, but in fact, they are forgetting the fact that a Cell Phone is not just made for making calls.

Almost a third of 738 executives, some CIOs, say top IT management should go. Another 13% blamed "non-IT executives" for IT failing to meet strategic albeit challenging objectives.

Data Security & Cyber Privacy: Circumstances Have Changed, and So Should IT

Blog-post by,

Lately, it feels like data breaches are making headlines daily. The breaches at Target and Neiman-Marcus, for example, have raised a crescendo of concern that is certainly justified but sometimes a little off base. In particular, there’s confusion over the distinction between online privacy and online security. Some of the commentators have simply been echoing Sun CEO, Scott McNealy’s comments dating back to 1999, suggesting that we all just “get over it” and learn to live without online privacy.
