Widening my Connections

Although I consider myself fairly adept at the use of social media (especially for an old fart), I’ve still confined a great deal of my affirmative content to the intranet of the company I will no longer be working for as of tomorrow. I have spent a fair amount of time on Twitter, and I have this blog, but they haven’t been places I could talk freely about the experiences I had there or my views on what it all means. This, of course, will be changing and I will be freer to speak my mind. I don’t care what anyone says, unless you somehow are given a written guarantee there will be no repercussions (and probably not even then), why would you expose your thoughts to the hand that feeds you? Especially if you are convinced the changes required to meet the company’s stated needs are massive and painful?

So . . . I’m increasing my outward-facing posture in small bites, partly due to my need to better learn how things are connected and how best to take advantage of those connections to get my message across as succinctly and unobtrusively as possible. This post represents one of those instances. While I can post at Posterous via email, I’ve finally gotten it through my thick skull I can do so here as well. This is my first email using WordPress’s email posting capability. Bam!

About Rick Ladd

Born in 1947, I was an officially retired pensioner, but in January of 2015 I returned to work as a contractor at Aerojet Rocketdyne. I remain intensely interested in, and fascinated by, Systems Thinking, Knowledge Management, Decision Intelligence, and Business in general. I am also conversant in such concepts as innovation and ideation, collaborative tools and strategies, crowd sourcing, and the use of social media to accomplish goals ranging from improving business processes to promoting small retail businesses. While "retired" I did a little bit of freelancing as an editor/proofreader, as well as some technical writing. There's lots more where that came from. Need some help? Perhaps another set of eyes? Contact me. The first one's free! ;0) View all posts by Rick Ladd
