This blog was founded on february 10th, 2011.

It is a personal blog written and edited by me and my guest authors.

My aim is to provide useful information to executives and managers working for or dealing with Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).

I plan to write about Management, Economy, Market Trends, News and Productivity Apps/Gadgets.
