The Medical Check up included wearing an Holter Monitor recording my heart

Digital Human Beings: Vision or Risk?

Solutions for a Smarter Business. One of the most interesting and practical
presentations was Moises Navarro's presentation on Cloud Computing.
He quoted an IBM survey about suitable and unsuitable workload types for
implementation in the Cloud. The ten leading suitable workloads included many

Another post was titled: Customers Typology: The Customer who Knows
Everything. I described customer of that type as: "This Customer type is sure
that he knows more than anyone else. He is also sure that his understanding
is better than any body's understanding".
