The lifespan of most organisation is shorter than the lifespan of the individuals that make part of it. Compare the fortune500 list of 2012 with that 20 years earlier and the temporariness of organisation becomes evident. Remenber Enron, Digital Equipment, Generale Bank, Saab?
And although some companies live for quite a long period, most of the traces they leave vanish in thin air like the contrails of an airplane (the chemical and nuclear contamination and the depletion of natural resources some leave, are the sad exceptions).
This temporariness of its imprints and of the organizations themselves and their borders, provides some lightness to this blog.
