SOHO Technology 3.0

If you had gone through the draft documents I had mentioned in my last posting, you might be wondering, what is the relationship amongst SOHO Technology 3.0 and “Office-In-Every-Home” and “Home-In-Every-Office” (the SOHO Technology without the 3.0 postfix)? Very obviously, SOHO Technology is a subset of SOHO Technology 3.0 or, in IT language, beta version. Actually, there is more to meet the eyes.

“Office-In-Every-Home” is developing work-from-home culture or family office for entrepreneurship, using Small-Office-Home-Office. This is Component One (1) of the SOHO Technology.

“Home-In-Every-Office” is developing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) culture, advocating corporate family concept / common stakeholder-ship amongst employees, customers, suppliers and other externalities. This is Component Two (2) of the SOHO Technology.

"Third Place" is added to complete the picture. There is a further Component Three (3) in SOHO Technology called the “Third Place”, usually a social location or site other than the Home (First Place) and the Work-place (Second Place). The “Third Place” could also be your social clubs / church or you can deem the Internet / World-World-Web as the largest “Third Place” in the world. For start-ups, a shared office or co-working arrangement or business incubator is the Third Place.

Therefore, we have the following relationship established:

SOHO Technology = Using (1) to realize (2) assisted by (3) = Latest “3-in1” Work-from-Home Package = Business Model start-up for Social-Environmental-Entrepreneurship = Global-Business-Plan (GBP).

On the other hand, SOHO Technology 3.0 is the Grass-Root-Philosophy (GRP) dwelling in Soil or Toil and Wealth (SOHO1), Sun or Green Economy (SOHO2), and Soul or Health and Happiness (SOHO3), thus holistically integrates Social-Environmental-Entrepreneurship (SEE), advocating personal development / actualization while practicing the Triple-Bottom-Line of Profit / People / Planet or Economy / Equity / Ecology.

Therefore, we have the following relationship established:

SOHO Technology 3.0 = SOHO-1 + SOHO-2 + SOHO-3 = Soil (Toil and Wealth), Sun (Green Economy), Soul (Health and Happiness) = Personal Tool for Self Development and Social-Environmental-Entrepreneurship (SEE) using SOHO Technology (“3-in-1” Package) = Triple-Bottom-Line = Philosopher-Businessperson = Grass-Root-Philosophy (GRP).

So, you can also say SOHO Technology 3.0 is about Sun, Sea, Sand and Sauna .... Health, Wealth and Happiness (HWH).... via Soil, Sun and Soul, with ICT playing an important and crucial role.

Welcome on board ..... to Generation-E (Environment, Energy, Equity, Enterprise and E-commerce)!
