This year looks set to be a very interesting – perhaps transitional – period for my organizations Future Exploration Network and Advanced Human Technologies. While they currently function as highly virtual firms with only a small core team, they may start to grow more as we do larger projects and also get involved in some

I recently met Stan Relihan, having been introduced to him separately by Cameron Reilly of The Podcasting Network fame, leading tech journalist Brad Howarth, and also from further afield Charlene Hutt, one of the leading HR practitioners in Canada. The diverse introductions in themselves illustrate the deeply interconnected nature of social networks. Stan is an
Back in May 2007 ReadWriteWeb posted my list of the Top 60 Web 2.0 applications in Australia, which we created as a prelude to our Web 2.0 in Australia event. I’m reposting the list now, partly as the full list is no longer available from the ReadWriteWeb site for some reason, and also because I
I’ve just been interviewed by SBS TV for a segment on Skype, which will air on their World News tonight at 6:30pm.
