Too Connected

I remember one of my colleagues at the time coming back from media briefings explaining how then 3Com CEO Eric Benhamou had talked about becoming too connected. This was a number of years ago and at the time when the 3Com tag line was 'more connected'.

Benhamou was smart enough to see the implications of the Internet and wireless technologies and how they would impact on society.

I was reminded of Benhamou's comments by
this piece
on that talks about how businesses are making the decision to go with wireless devices for some of the wrong reasons and is symptomatic of bad management techiniques or structures.
