1. Be careful where you share your data online, but not fearful.
2. Don’t fear early technology adoption — but it’s best to learn from others’ experiences first.
3. Try to zero in on new-technology failure as a learning tool, both others’ and your own.
4. Network and ask questions of your colleagues and trusted experts about tech pitfalls/advantages.
5. Don’t be overly protective about giving or collecting new information.
