Playing is one of the human needs that lasts for a lifetime. We all need to have fun and since games are fun, providing players with a positive experience, people engage with games freely (when it is not pathological gambling) and with the mere motivation to enjoy themselves. Why don’t we consider our products for professionals as they were games? Read further >

Do you remember arguing with your partner during your holiday trip, whether the inconvenient street map on his/her lap is saying that you should take the next right turn or not? I do!

For some years now, we are more relaxed, because we have our digital lady telling us where to go. And if she is wrong, we know whom to blame, which strengthens our relationship even more.

What does this tell us about the future of the publishing industry?

The Court of Justice of the European Union has recently decided that “An internet search engine operator is responsible for the processing that it carries out of personal data which appear on web pages published by third parties.”

Based on that decision, international websites as well as national discussion platforms in Europe are glowing with activity.

Fascinating, isn’t it? This song is older than I am and still fresher than I’ve ever been. It has a (hi)story on its own covering fifty years now. From being the “archetypical protest song” to becoming a part of strategic investment (a hedge fund manager bought the hand-written lyrics for more than $400k).

Still, the underlying question requires if not an answer, yet at least a reaction: How do I deal with change?

In Wolters Kluwer GPO Presents series this February, we are looking at emerging technologies and debating their applications for our customers.

Today, I gave my 2nd presentation, How To Disrupt Legal Disruptors, via the Wolters Kluwer GPO Presents series on the topic: wearables and legal services. Calling it a challenge is putting it mildly because I’m very skeptical. Is it possible to dwarf legal products down to a 1.26 inch screen? It would certainly not be a legal research product which deserves nothing but the biggest surface to comfortably exercise, right? Read further >

Freestyle Chess is a competition between humans, who are allowed, like in correspondence chess, to make use of any technical support for selecting their moves. Basically it’s an interplay between human intuition and computer calculating power to arrive at the best course of action. What if we had such advance algorithms similar to the chess paradigm, how would these system assist lawyers in picking legal strategies? And who would likely use them? Read further >
