  • On reading and writing

    It’s a world wide web out there. There’s plenty of room for everyone. And I, for one, love reading the words of others.

    I have been very lax about writing anything of substance on here recently, apart from the end of year lists. I must try harder.

  • Aim to be porous

    Obviously, open by default is the new fashionable, but I’m pretty sure it’s no longer enough for organisations to be “open” because no matter how hard you try, eventually that just becomes PR and marketing fluff. Much better to aim to be porous. For people and conversations and ideas to flow in and out irrespective of departmental and organisational boundaries. Rip down the barriers to conversation and collaboration internally and externally.
