I have been reviewing software for the AppGap and writing about other topics for this blog since January 2008. It has been a great run and much fun. I have met many great people and been exposed to some ground breaking software. It has been a wonderful way to stay current with the market and observe its trends. I often refer to the blog myself, using the Appopedia to look at past reviews. This resource is organized by both product category and by vendor.
Last November I moved back to my childhood home, New Orleans, to focus more on my painting. Here is a post on my move: Driving Through Hurricane Sandy To New Orleans. Here is another post on my more recent experiences with the Arts Council of New Orleans where I do a monthly booth to sell my paintings.
I will continue to stay connected to the emerging technology space and write about it on my Portals and KM blog, as well as the AppFusions blog. However, I am also modifying my PKM blog content to include more posts on my new hometown and my painting, as well as stories on new technology trends and software. I will announce this move the beginning of May.
I greatly appreciate the support of Francois Gossieaux and his Human 1.0 team, especially Kelly Morrissey. They continue to do interesting work in the social business space. It was also fun to work with them on the FastForward blog where I started in 2007 with the FastFoward conference. We are looking into ways to make that content accessible again. This is an exciting space and it is with great reluctance that I make this move.
