-- Business blog now available --

A quick note to say that I've set up my Business blog, to be able to speak with a clear voice on both personal and work issues (i.e. by having separate blogs).

Opening Salvo

Having prevaricated for several days, I thought I'd get going with an introductory spiel about why I'm starting this personal blog.

Firstly, a tip of the hat to Tarek Nseir, Boss of TH_NK, who was the prime mover, suggesting that I start writing to share my ideas and passions.

I'm an ideas-led fellow, and look forward to the opportunity to pass on what interesting tidbits and trends I'm looking into at the time of posting.

I would like to think that, in writing this blog, I can tap into the ever-growing wisdom of an increasingly self-aware "crowd" that is the Internet - and that this will encourage a two-way flow of ideas. :-)

Potential future topics for discussion:
  • Fungi
  • Emergent Complexity & Self-organisation
  • The works of Steven Berlin Johnson
  • Crowd-sourcing
  • Virtual Worlds
  • Information & Knowledge Management
  • A bit of politics (emphasis on "bit")
    • fyi, I've subscribed to The Economist for ten years, so consider myself socially liberal, economically conservative
    • n.b. there may be the occasional rant when I get particularly frustrated!
  • Graphic design, typefaces and the like
  • Mountain biking
  • Emotional, spiritual and psychological toolsets - my undergraduate degree was Psychology
That's probably about it for now. "Wellbanked" is derived from the house name of my dear Granny, Frances Gwendoline [name withheld], God bless 'er. :-D
