Marie Boran of SiliconRepublic.com has posted a nice article about the OpenCoffee movement in Ireland. Yours truly is quoted in the article.
OpenCoffee is an informal networking event attended mainly by people in the tech industry. It’s been a great event to help me meet people in Dublin (and other communities in Ireland), and is a great chance to get freelancers out of their bubble to meet people in the same situation as themselves. Check the OpenCoffeeDublin web site for more information.

Change is constant – we all deal with it, we all complain about it. We all do it. In a 2008 study titled “The Enterprise of the Future”, IBM surveyed over 1,000 CEOs around the world. 83% of those surveyed said they expect their organization to undergo substantial change.
But only 61% of those executives believe they have managed change successfully in the past.
Why the disconnect? If change is so constant, why are we so bad at it?

Do you ever have trouble getting your living room temperature just right? It gets cold outside, so you bump the heat up. Whoops, too much, now you’re too hot. Down with the thermostat. Wait, now it’s freezing, turn up the heat! Cycle after cycle, until finally you get it dialed in just right. Now you can fire up the TV and binge-watch your favorite show.
Congratulations, you understand systems thinking – that’s it in a nutshell.
