I have lots of ideas – the product of a busy mind and a long career – but am happy to take any requests for topics to cover, investigate and write about. Anything in the broad areas of IT, computers/technology, business & commerce are fair game. But also, education, eLearning, EdTech, books, pop-science etc.
Welcome and thank you for any ideas and any special requests or guest blogs.
