hotel suites than promised talks about "Change," a word with a Pavlovian
effect. Change always gets these people to stare at speakers and screens
with the hopes of taking back something useful to repeat at the next
meeting of the board. This week, Open magazine presents two pieces about
change, equally interesting for fresh concepts and designs.
IT consultant Paul Murphy discusses where Sun's strategy is, isn't, and
must be if Sun is to effect the right change.
Over to a Long Island-based, two-person e-store, with an interesting
story of change. Thanks to the advantages of an open platform with Linux,
the two proprietors think less about fresh Maine lobsters growing
unexpected aromas in truck depots and more about a sweeter smell of success.
