A place for creative collaboration – ideas?

We’re building a place for creative collaboration and we love ideas.  Here’s the thing: Philosophers have spent centuries defining art and creativity.  Recently scientists and educators have taken to researching creativity.  But from a work standpoint, we don’t really need to understand the roots of the creative instinct, or how the mind works comes up…

SPBT Workshop on Live Internet training

We mentioned at SPBT this year we’ll be doing a couple sessions, one of which is a post conference workshop on how to really, actually, truly conduct successful live Virtual training (PDF, scroll down).

Your virtual training can be better… really!

We’re the first to say that nothing can replace being in-person.  If there was, there wouldn’t be any need to go to the beach for vacation!  The same can be said for training, communication, collaboration and conferences.  However, with such a clear cost value proposition to Directors and Vice Presidents, virtual everything is virtually a…

Live video streaming and turkey

How do they go together?  Well, they don’t really unless there is interest watching someone deep fry a turkey and potentially burn down their house/garage/gazebo.  If that was captured live I’m thinking it would draw some serious viewership numbers. rVibe’s blog has gone live at Thanksgiving this year.  And for that we are thankful, because…
