Let me be clear: I actually admire those who have figured out a way to monetize providing services to the unemployed. Most marketers would probably, conducting a SWOT analysis, point to the fact that categorically, those without jobs who are “actively looking” likely lack disposable income. But, you see, that’s capitalism in action.
If you’ve logged into Google, bought a book on Amazon, “liked” an article on Facebook or streamed a movie on Netflix, you’ve seen cloud computing in action — yet probably weren’t even aware of it.
Similarly, the convergence of cloud computing with HR systems is already ubiquitous, yet invisible.
If you’ve noticed I haven’t posted a lot of content recently, the truth of the matter is, I don’t write a lot of content that’s not copy I’m getting paid for. Why? It’s simple, really. I hate writing. But I have the curse of being able to do it cogently, and sometimes, eloquently. But the process is probably the worst thing in the world, because, well, there isn’t one. I’d like to think writing is a craft, and it all comes down to discipline, but really, it doesn’t. In the end, it comes down to motivation.
