Most likely, only my Cambodian blogger friends like Lux Mean will understand the reference. So, let me explain. Dop Pram Moi is how you say sixteen in Khmer. The song, "I'm Sixteen" was made popular by the band Dengue Fever
According to a 16-page Nortel Whitepaper, "16% of people are 'hyper connected' [and] that 16% is expected to balloon to over 40% in the coming years." Such people "use many more devices, channels, and tools then 'regular' people" and "they are generally always on, always connected and see this as a good thing." (hat tip Stephen Downes)
Claire Fisher of the Remote Access Blog points out:
The hyper connected have a few traits:
- The boundary between work ad personal time is virtually non - existent.
- They use many more devices, channels, and tools then "regular" people.
- Hyper connectivity among employees has the potential to increase security risks due to lost hardware, software, internet transfer of files, etc.
- They are generally early adopters of new technologies and consider themselves to be global people.
- Only 1/3 of hyper connected people see themselves as early adopters
- They are generally always on, always connected and see this as a good thing.

I have to ask, what, if anything, does this mean for nonprofits? Will this become something listed in a job description? How will we balance personal productivity with social productivity?
