'In many ways, the only thing we can know about the future is that new services and products will change the way organizations operate. Sometimes in unexpected ways. The best way to address this uncertainty is with more effective information flow. This way, organizations can take advantage of unseen opportunities by swiftly adapting to an ever-shifting information terrain. That's what we help you do. We build information platforms that empower users to discover, understand the value of, and leverage the vast quantities of data available out there. We don't just work with static, structured, and clean data. Instead, we specialize in transforming real-time, noisy, 'dirty' data into relevant, timely insight to solve complex problems.'
I don't perceive what I am doing as multitasking, really. I am not trying to speed up how quickly I shift from one thing to another. Instead, I am involved in a stream of activities, in which other people figure prominently, either synchronously through direct discussion (a la Twitter or IM) or indirectly, through their writings and my responses. In many cases, I leave activities dangling because I don't know exactly how I feel about them. In some cases, I could resolve my feelings and take some action if I simply stopped other activities and focused solely on that activity, but in most cases that is not the case. And simply forcing myself to focus on the next thing in the activity would not lead to an acceptable or beneficial result, necessarily. It's like a painter with a number of works in process. My primary motivation is not getting a particular painting 'done', but adding dabs of paint that I feel are the right ones.
