CEO GUIDE TO THE WEB OF THE FUTUREGiven what most CEOs have been through during the past decade in tech consulting (both internally and externally), my expectation is that reading a clip like this will only tend to confirm to CEOs that they are better off being a late adopter rather than early. Technologies that require external consulting specialists for managing one's own data is not terribly appealing to business leaders. It will remind many of their ERP experiences. In any event, very few business leaders I know will rely on a publication for advice on such matters, and certainly not based on this level of depth.

Personally, I think for wide industry adoption to occur it will require the efficiencies of products rather than custom builds. And that don't rely on a very small group of consultants, or wide consensus on standards, but rather adoption of technologies that allow them to determine their own destiny and increase differentiality. Getting to point A to point B is an interesting journey.

What appeals to the scientific user often conflicts directly with the fiduciary responsibility of those who govern organizations- a difficult challenge for those of us attempting to bridge communities. .02- MM
