Dear Readers, last year, I was involved in the creation and launch of a new open thought leadership discussion forum called Unstructure. It stood apart from the crowd, as it was aimed squarely at working professionals, while connecting them with a “mentorship committee” formed by renowned contemporary thinkers such as Tarun Khanna and Oliver Marks. Unstructure was designed to spawn open conversations which were guided towards a mandate. It was a fair start and if the world’s attention wasn’t drawn back to the economic collapse – it would have been a great start.

I am happy to announce that Unstructure is back in a new improved avatar. The look and feel itself is young and dynamic. It is now easier to participate and a great place to read from the new bunch of thinkers, who will come on board as the year progresses. The first topic of discussion itself is a “firecracker”.

Roberto Masiero – President of IDC International – has asked a very simple question: “How do you think digital technologies will help Human Development?” He goes on to introduce a simple model called the “Diamond of Digital Innovation” which can be used to study the effect of technology across four socio-economic factors:

1) Quality of Life
2) Competitiveness of local enterprise systems
3) Effectiveness and Efficiency of government
4) Overcoming the digital divide

The conversation has just begun… haul yourself to http://www.unstructure.org to join in and contribute. Maybe there is a thought leader hidden in you… 🙂
