Last week I appeared on Xinhua’s CNC World Report discussing the Kodak bankruptcy.
The discussion centered on Kodak’s history and its response to industry change. As I mentioned in the interview, Kodak was unable to change its internal culture so as to benefit from the shift to digital photography – technological change that, paradoxically, it helped usher in. Kodak did not realize the potential of digital photography early enough and it reacted late, by which time it was far too late to play catch up.
A little snippet:

I resisted for as long as I possibly could, but I finally broke down and decided to become a twitterer (tweeter??).
I know, I know – I’m way late to the party. However, in the week or so I’ve been fooling around with the micro-blogging service, I’ve found it easier to post links to interesting articles. It’s also easier to toss out half-baked ideas. Time will tell whether I stick with it…
Nevertheless, for those of you feeling so inclined, you can follow my twitter feed @RobertSalomon.
My apologies for the recent radio silence. I was traveling for the better part of the month of August – first on business, then enjoying a bit of vacation time with the family.
Still in the midst of that travel. Will return to a more regular posting schedule upon my return after Labor Day, …but I just couldn’t resist the temptation to post this short note from 39,000 feet in the air on a plane traveling between New York and San Francisco.
I am increasingly marveled by the ubiquity of connectivity. I’m hard pressed to think now of a place where the internet is unavailable. Airplanes were seemingly the last remaining preserve – protected from internet infiltration. No more!
What’s more, I’m writing this post with my relatively new-ish technological toy: the iPad. So far I love it, though the highly-publicized flash clash incompatibilities drive me a little crazy sometimes.
That aside, if you would have told me last year that I’d be writing a blog post on an airplane with a handheld tablet computer, I’d have called you crazy. Amazing!
UPDATE IN THE INTEREST OF FULL DISCLOSURE: While I was able to draft this post on the airplane with the iPad, for whatever reason (either because of some issues with WordPress, the iPad’s compatibility with WordPress/flash, or the wireless service on the airplane) I was not able to actually post the message from the plane. It needed to wait until my return. Hence, the delay in posting. Technology. Go figure.
