Sommertime Break July & August
Thanks for the last 33 years!
(Editors Note | Update)
… this was the message at the 27th Nov. 2018 from the management board after the meeting and canceling the worlds biggest tech fair. The days after many unprofessional statements followed.
In 1986, the first IT fair (CeBIT) in Hannover (Germany) opened its doors. An inglorious opening, but did not prevent the success.
Now in 2018 the CeBIT ends abruptly and also ingloriously. The Digital Disruption becomes a common topic.
But this is not all, Germany will face more problems in the near future. And its all about MANAGEMENT and POLITICIANS or BOTH as most members of the boards are politicians. rep10_2
And as the POLITICIANS haven't or were not able to prepare the future we cannot expect successful young C-Position managers raising the country back from the ground. Knowing this many already working abroad.
As a summary we can enjoy watching US and Chinese corporations celebrating many "Black Fridays" in Germany and becoming slowly but sure main share holders.
From Chinese management schools we can hear the sound of 再见德国…
And my suggestion for the lower management: start learning Mandarin to understand your future boss!

Women stop doing this in meetings - Mel Robbins
Women, the next time you're in a meeting or in a classroom and you get the urge to be the only person taking notes...put the pen down. You have something of worth to say, and you won't say it if you're focused on writing down others peoples ideas. The first step to finding your voice, is using it.
(Editors Note:) it is a nice tech idea, but a bit questionable. I started practicing something like that with my secretary 1996 when launching a chain of REMAX offices in Germany. But it was less for an active participation in an executive debate as more for receiving a better and profund opinion of her about agreements and the participants. Listen to other opinions is sometimes helpful. 2255
China launches a nationwide 5G trial
China has issued licenses to the country's big three telecom carriers, China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom, to use low-and medium-band spectrum for nationwide 5G trial network construction, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said on 6th December.
(Editors Note: a couple of days later the US Government ordered the detention of the Huawei CFO [daughter of the founder] which marks a new chapter of the trade war tension. Canada and US companies already prepare for upcoming trouble in China. Furthermore it wouldn't surprise if the Chinese government detains Western citizens. A questionable move by the US authorities in the East - West trade war.) 
Marriott Hacking Disaster Update
The security and hacking scene asks if Marriott is setting itself up for another hacking disaster. As known, Marriott sent millions of emails admitting that there was a massive data breach in its Starwood subsidiary’s database affecting 500 million guests. The problem is they sent it from the unknown domain email-marriott.com
(Editors Note: now everybody in the scene is speculating about Marriott’s carelessness. We hope that smart CIO/CTO managers watch similar domains or register similar domains to protect them away from hackers. From the hotel chain has been no response so far. We will stay updated! 2345
