- "Spaces of the Real: How Sensors Will Change the Way We See the World," by Geoff Cohen, Perspectives on Business Innovation, Issue 9.

Bionic Organization," by Geoff Cohen and John Parkinson,
Perpsectives on Business Innovation, Issue 8. An article I wrote
about a meeting of the CGEY Technology Advisory Board, which included
Clay Shirky, David Clark, Usama Fayyad, Chris Shipley, and Alan Kay.
A smart bunch of people!
Open Letter to the Software Nobility," by Geoff Cohen and Alan
Radding, January 2002. A particularly good paper on the future of
