2010 Redux

Learn and Lead

2010 was a rather quiet year for my blog. My blog didn’t see much of me this year, only 24 posts this year. Tweetstats tells me I posted only 854 tweets in 2010 against more than 2000 the previous year. And still, sometime during this year, this blog completed three years, crossed 50,000 hits and more than 370 feed subscribers. The new role also takes me even closer to the actual implementation of learning solutions and is providing me new insights. I am hoping to make up for my sparse blogging last year in 2011.

And Massively , a blog that provides daily information about MMOs. There is a great deal of "churn" in the 3D virtual immersive environment space. think it is natural churn in a market that is fast emerging but some of that churn can seem unfriendly and one can certainly see the industry as "half-full" as the analogy goes.
