A post-truth era?

Do we now live in a post-truth era? I’ve heard that question quite a lot over the past few weeks and months, after a year in which a lot of people made a lot of money and more from peddling

Structure, story and relational-assets

This is an attempt to get back towards ‘Normal Service Will Be Resumed…‘ – I don’t know how coherent it will be, but it’s a start, anyway… Over the past few weeks I’ve had a stream of very good questions from Eric

Maggie’s Farm

We’re two days away from what will almost certainly be one of the greatest collective-blunders ever to impact the US, and possibly the world as well. Here in Britain, we have a similar collective-blunder that is fast approaching its endgame.

Normal Service Will Be Resumed…

Yes, I’ve been quiet here for quite a while. Apologies for the absence and all that. Various reasons. One has been the un-joys that is the so-called ‘holiday season’ – a month-long hell of family, ghastly fake-music and faked-up pseudo-jollity everywhere, the

Business-novel – chapter 19-21

And yes, another instalment for the business-novel that I’m working on at present – the previous posts to date have been for Chapters 00-03, Chapters 04-08, Chapters 09-12 and Chapters 13-18. (For reference, everything so far I’d written back in 2013, and this will

Business-novel – chapters 13-18

And the next instalment of the business-novel that I’m working on at present. Previous posts have covered Chapters 00-03, Chapters 04-08 and Chapters 09-12. Most of the chapters in this instalment are just ‘mood-setting’ pieces that might well end up on the cutting-room floor in

Business-novel – chapters 09-12

And the next instalment of the business-novel that I’m working on at present. Previous posts have covered Chapters 00-03 and Chapters 04-08. More character-stuff in this extract – in particular, introducing Alicia and Pavel (of whom we’ll see a lot more), and Kim

Business-novel – chapters 04-08

Here’s the next instalment on the business-novel I’m working on at present, as per the previous post. Not much enterprise-architecture in this part of the story – it’s mainly introducing some of the other key characters and context for the

Business novel – chapters 00-03

I said in an earlier post that I’m moving more towards describing my ideas on enterprise-architecture and the like into fiction-based form – in the hope that it will make it somewhat more understandable for most folks in and beyond the

On fiction and RBPEA – ‘Chance and the Institution’

Another follow-on from the fiction theme as described in the two previous posts. This extract from the collaborative transmedia-project gives a bit more detail on the underlying backstory and storyworld that I’m setting up for it, and the crucial impact
