    The Internal Blog

    • 2 Comments
    I've tried to maintain an internal blog with only mixed success. I'm going to try again. Principally because I believe it's important the new social tools are adopted in-house, and there's no substitute for leading by example. Practical experience is...

    OpenSocial, Punctuated Equilibrium

    • 1 Comments
    Generally speaking, OpenSocial is amazing news. The social layer I've been prattling on about for, well, a very long time, is really shaping up. Though I still believe we've yet to do more than scratch the surface of social user experiences. And that...
