DECEMBER 10, 2010
I have come to the realisation that blogging is a key strategy for coping with information anxiety - the stress you feel when trying to take advantage of what seems like a never-ending stream of interesting leads to follow-up online.

Volatility in 3D Virtual World Industry
JUNE 22, 2010
And Massively , a blog that provides daily information about MMOs. There is a great deal of "churn" in the 3D virtual immersive environment space.

Why we need conferences
Clive on Learning
NOVEMBER 23, 2010
But having spent some time now immersed in The Power of Pull by John Hagel III, John Seely Brown and Lang Davison (2010), I'm convinced that conferences will have an important role to play for years to come. But however many blogs we subscribe to or Twitter feeds we follow, we're always in danger of playing safe, sticking with the people we already know all about. The reason? Well, conferences provide an ideal setting for serendipitous encounters - discovering what you you did not know you did not know / meeting people you did not know you needed to know. My conclusion?
