The Bamboo Project Blog

Although WIRED is now claiming that blogs are dead , I'm not buying that. Maybe they're dead to a minuscule group of people who are easily bored and only talk in 140 character spurts, but if learning is reduced to tweets, I think we're in big trouble.

Transparent Office

Much has been made in the last 5 years about the democratization of publishing and how the line between publishers and consumers of content is getting blurred.
