The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Microsoft employees rate Steve Ballmer as tech's worst CEO. How long can he last?

The site says the approval rating of Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer from his employees is the lowest of any major tech company --- a dismal 40%. Given this latest piece of bad news, how long can he last at Microsoft?

For the last two years, has regularly surveyed employees of a dozen major tech companies and asks them to rate their CEOs. It just announced the latest year's rankings, and the news couldn't be worse for Ballmer. His approval rating is down in the dumps, at 40%. The next worst CEO rating is well above his, eBay's John Donahoe at 46%.

At the top is outgoing Google CEO Eric Schmidt, with 96%, followed closely by Steve Jobs (on health leave) with 95%.

Ballmer also has the distinction of having the second biggest decline of any of the CEOs, falling from a poor 46% last year to the dismal 40% this year.

Below, from the glassdoor site, you can see the ranking, and then underneath that, from the site, a comparison of Schmidt's, Bartz's and Ballmer's approval rating over the last several years. Not a pretty picture, is it?

At this rate, how long can Ballmer last? He has been frequently criticized by many outside of Microsoft for lacking vision. On his watch, Google zoomed to dominate Internet search, and Apple and Google have dominated the smartphone business --- the two greatest growth areas in tech.

Even the Microsoft board, which generally supports Ballmer, no matter what he does, has been restive. Back in September, they gave him only half of his potential bonus, and faulted him for:
the unsuccessful launch of the Kin phone; loss of market share in the company's mobile phone business; and the need for the Company to pursue innovations to take advantage of new form factors.

As the glassdoor rating shows, he's clearly lost the trust of his employees as well. With a lukewarm rating by the board, with his employees clearly not behind him, and with constant outside criticism, it's not clear how long his tenure will be at Microsoft.

Ballmer has said that he plans to retire in 2018. Don't count on him lasting that long.
