An internal look at spirulina creation: a special interview with Dr. Gerry Cysewski, CEO of Cyanotech Corporation Mike: For our readers who might not be acquainted with microalgae and spirulina, can you give a brief overview of what we’re talking about, and in what role your organization plays in the market? Gerry: Okay, well first of all, I’d like to explain that Cyanotech, the real name comes from cyanobacteria or blue-green algae, and Cyanotech is a microalgae company – – all of our products and technology derive from microalgae . We think microalgae holds tremendous potential for human health insurance and nutrition.


The study was component of an Australian Postdoctoral Fellowship Project where in-depth interviews were conducted with 26 information workers from large organisations across different industry groups over 3 years. The research project coincided with the rise of online culture over the past three years: specifically social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Dr Gregg says as yet many folks have considered these systems to be part of people’s leisure practices that they engage with in their time off. ‘But also for workers in a variety of office jobs, it’s become area of the job. And largely this has happened without the discussion at the workplace about implications for workload,’ Dr Gregg says.
