Google and blogger play: watch the blogs go by


I was posting when I noticed, running across, another new feature and functionality by Google on "Google buzz" (The bullettin board breaking news about Blogger directly from the Blogger team at Google.) http://buzz.blogger.com/

Blogger play is an online application for showing a random gallery of photos as they're posted by blogger's users and always up to date. A never ending stream of photos by bloggers: motion and still motion!
The concept has some taste attaining to philosophical and religious matters: think to the images raised by Hesse's Siddharta!

It seems very interesting and I've begun thinking a bit of its possible developments and consequences.

After all, with different hi-tech companies competitors launching their slideshow tools for web users in the current Web 2.0 arena (as known Google itself has long ago acquired the Picasa application) this move was on one hand to be expected, but on the other contains definetely important elements of novelty (such as, for istance, random and massive collaboration aspects).

It's sure another evidence of the amazing cleverness and hard working of Googgle Labs, even if sometimes passing through the inevitable and physiological setbacks or leaks and bugs of testing stages (I'm thinking to the debut of these page themselves (I started using blogger around the end of 2006 and then different problems made it practically unusable), on which I'm currently writing perfectly with no problem.

You can find the application at the following link: http://play.blogger.com/

The user can always opt not to show his/her own photos as a privacy option.

Enjoy with Blogger play and let the blogs go by !

Management and Buyout conference in Milan

Today's attendance of Management & buyout.

Conference hosted by Intesa Sanpaolo Private banking in Milan.

A conference about how men, assets, capitals and governance can assist the devolopement of business enterprises (above all the medium-sized one) thanks to the contribution of Private equity operations.

A conference organized by Atema and AIFI, supported by Crescendo, with the contribution of the consulting company Governance Consulting.

Among the others, at the outset hat been discussed in particular how the role and the functions of temporary managers in Italy aren't yet so well developed, recognised and rewarding as they're in anglo-saxon countries, in spite of the fact that more of italian TMs are striving inspired by their determination, never ending enthusiasm to do their best, for achieving top performance results under stressfull and risky situations.

The conference has seen the intervention of some important persons in charge of private equity companies world, showing both some examples of financial operations, and of the human factor and the importance of these factors in achieving successful results. It closed with a roundtable.

This is one of my many attendances at seminars, conferences, workshops and similars on managerial topics (as well as on business consulting, accounting and legal topics and issues). A series I began in 1996 ( my intention is to set up a well organized list about them).
