Blog With Integrity

May 10, 2010 Comments off

Whilst looking into what was going to be happening at EMC World this week  I came across a link to the above on the blog of Len Devanna – Director of Social Strategy for EMC Corporation.

The concept behind the site is simple – encourage bloggers to pledge that they will respect their readership by being open, honest and professional at all times.

That’s why I’ve taken the pledge, I encourage you to do the same.

You can find the full text and more here.

So does the book meet/exceed the promise made? ..

Read the rest of my review based upon a pre-release edition of the manuscript.

Make The Most of Your Surroundings

MS NERD iconBoston is well known as a major conference and exhibition hub as well as being home to a number of high tech corporations and one of the things I was looking forward to upon moving here were the opportunities for networking this might present. Two examples that came to light are events regularly hosted at the Microsoft New England Research & Development (affectionately known as the NERD) Center and the Boston Mac User Group which holds it’s meeting on the MIT campus.

Obviously not everybody is in a situation as fortunate as mine but the point is every now and then to get from behind a keyboard, engage with other people of similar interests, make contacts and enjoy yourself – you never know what it might lead to.
