About This Blog

This blog is about the occasional comment on matters relating to people, performance and learning. It’s not meant to be corporate, definitive or even particularly deep on individual topics. It’s a personal take on how technology relates to work and on how people get what they need to do well at their jobs. The opinions on Work, Learn, Play do not necessarily reflect any stands taken by NetDimensions.

I hope you enjoy it.

Jay Shaw, NetDimensions CEO

Jay co-founded NetDimensions after more than a decade with then NASDAQ-listed The Princeton Review. Jay’s experience includes running The Princeton Review operations in the US and Asia, in which capacity he held executive responsibility for organising and delivering both academic and corporate training programs on a commercial basis. Jay taught English in China in 1984 and 1985. At London-Stock-Exchange-listed and OTCQX-quoted NetDimensions (AIM: NETD; OTCQX: NETDY) Jay is responsible for general management, strategy and the company’s ISO quality assurance program. He also likes to sail. Favorite quote (for now): “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
