Two things are causing major concerns:Privacy and security of customer’s data; Necessity to implement global regulations regardingthe use of private data.

It has become a big issue in Europe. The question is asked: How did the private firm gained the access to user’s data? Actually, it could be done very easy.

Stepping aside from active professional life, I got more time to observe and learn other things. I had to adopt new environment, new life style, and new people around. It was

Recently, I had a discussion with my Computer Science students regarding technology impact on society. I was kind of surprised that these young professionals (most of my Masters students are having jobs already) were telling me that technology is making people lazy and irresponsible.People are expecting from technology everything – starting from banking up to grocery shopping and travel bookings. In the nearest future, people expect even more – robotization of process-oriented an
Since common trends show the shifting towards digitization of resources, many discussions are taking place to analyze the quality and comfort of online reading. Reading online isn't the same as reading in print. When reading a book, we assume that the work is authoritative. In the printed material, texts might include pictures, drawings, tables, or diagrams. When reading the printed resources, we do it sequentially, consistently word by word. Regarding articles on the Net, we have much l
We are spending a lot of time communicating online: private issues, business assignments, community engagement, training, learning, entertaining – the list is endless.I might look as an easy way to deal with colleagues, bosses, employees, clients, friends… Unfortunately, it is a misleading perception. A lot of painful mistakes are made during online communication. Actually, it takes some time for a beginner to develop the correct style of communication: polite, respectful, concise
