Women’s equality has always been an anguished topic during my several decades in tech. While there’s still a long way to go, the good news is that the action is starting to catch up with the talk. Many companies are working hard to correct “the tech equality gap.”
People who like birthdays like to celebrate even mid-year points. And we like birthdays a lot. So we’re proud to share that Bospar turns 2.5 on July 1. On one hand, that’s a short time. On the other, it’s a lot of work days – and often long ones when you’re as passionate as we are.
Bospar was a New Year’s baby. So, it’s fitting that we have a tradition of taking two days in December for our entire staff of Bospartans to go off site together to strategize an even stronger year to come. Since we’re based in every U.S. time zone, this means lots of flights, hotel rooms and late nights at the bars.
Universities have long required their professors to publish scholarly books and papers; if they don’t, they find themselves out on the street – from which came the dreaded phrase, “publish or perish.” Now, that phrase rings equally true for public relations firms.

The good news if you are a first mover with a truly disruptive product or service is that you deserve to be elevated above the rest. The bad news is that no one – including the customers, the media and sometimes even the analysts – yet “gets” what your new capability does or why they should want to evangelize it.
Disruption is, to use a phrase of one of our influencer friends, “so simple, but yet so complicated.”
Our blog will explore the various complications of achieving the simple goal of disruption. It will hopefully in some small way help our readers to turn on the power of your own role in creating our 21st century icons of technology.
