Well it has been nearly a month without an update here. In case you are wondering, my internal blog at IBM has fared little better. As someone whose Moo cards until recently carried the word “blogger” (they now say “social bridgebuilder“), I should probably be trying a little harder.

The truth is, and this is a position I’ve always taken – keeping a blog going can require some effort. It’s not just the time thing… it’s having something to say and the energy to develop the thought into something meaningful. It’s not for everyone. Not only that, but the growth of other social media like Twitter (or the service I’ve been playing with more recently, Plurk) has certainly eaten into my blogging. It’s interesting that Fred Wilson and Ted Demopoulos have both observed the same thing lately – that their blogging has dipped as they have moved around other media.

So an update, for those interested… essentially things are as busy as ever, but I do recognise that I have things to share… there should (!) be more to follow.
