Podcasts and videocasts – any requests?

Just a quick question – or request for priorities, perhaps. I’m at last getting my act together on doing podcasts and videocasts around my existing and future materials. The podcasts will probably be two to five minutes long, on any appropriate

“Who will lead us out of our uncertainty?”

“The world still reels from the fallout from the crisis of 2008 :: Who will lead us out of our uncertainty?” Those are the frame-captions for a cartoon-style advert that’s currently running on the Forbes website, for an upcoming conference

At Unicom-EA 2013

Another week, another conference? Yes, I know it does sometimes seem a bit like that, but that’s part of what I do – getting the word out about enterprise-architecture, particularly at the larger whole-enterprise scope. This time it was in
