An idea worth spreading

KimmiC is committed to innovation and redefining the technological landscape. Central to our products are security and the ability to 'play well with others'. This means seamless integration with whatever technologies you currently use. FlatWorld is an IT/Web evolution which speaks semantically and is totally cloud based. It allows you to leverage existing knowledge assets, building new knowledge assets, and 'play well with others'. We K.I.S.S: Keep It Simply Semantic.

The Semantic Web has been a theory for years. It provides a common framework that allows data, processes and your company's knowledge to be shared and reused across applications, enterprise(s) and community boundaries.
KimmiC has made this a simple and secure reality.

KimmiC works in the 'flat world' , as a leader of innovation. KimmiC is the silver lining in the cloud

In the meantime, Dave took the opportunity to take part in my interview with Vint Cerf, the father of the internet, asking him about eHealth.

Johanna Blakley: Social media and the end of gender
I believe that this topic is an opening to a wider discussion about how women use the new technological tools of communication in their roles as business women, business owners and entrepreneurs in this ever flattening world. The technologies that enable and enhance creative communication and 'flat world navigation' are becoming more and more a part of our day to day existence. As such, I believe they will enable the disintegration of the gender divide in the workplace. Though these communication tools are available to both men and women equally, I believe women can take greater advantage of them, and the global interconnectedness that they engender. Interconnectedness necessitates the ability to form dynamic relationships – which is a core female capability. Clearly, the ability to connect globally and cross-culturally is becoming a requisite for companies and individuals, and this necessity will only increase in the future. Companies which embrace the innate, flat world navigation and creative communication capabilities of women, and put them in executive positions, will not only assist in destroying any glass ceilings that exist, but will also remove many of their own barriers to success. By enabling women to open and expand their flat worlds, new and greater opportunities can, and will, open for business as a whole. Women have a huge role to play in the flat world as business becomes less and less about 'mustering the troops and going forth and conquering' and more and more about creating and maintaining dynamic relationships. I suggest we all find our inner compass and begin navigating the flat world with gusto, grace and a generosity of spirit.
