    Learning in 3D: Adding a New Dimension to Enterprise Learning and Collaboration First an apology - I was supposed to write this review weeks ago and seriously dropped the ball. That in no way should take away from the fact that I think this is actually a very important book. Really? Think about e-learning for a minute. 10 -15 years? Schools.

    I spent several days in mid-February at Imperial College in London.  I was a speaker and panel member at an event sponsored by Design London , the multi-disciplinary innovation initiative between the Royal College of Art and the Imperial College engineering and business schools.  It was a very intriguing question that has stayed in my mind since.

    [2010] A Shorter history of psychiatric diagnosis
    The Wall Street Journal has an excellent article by historian of psychiatry, Edward Shorter , about the raft of new changes in the proposed revision of the DSM-V 'psychiatric bible' and how they reflect our changing ideas about mental illness. If you felt blue, uneasy and generally jumpy, "nerves" was a common diagnosis.

    [2010] Apple iPad and the 3 Waves and 5 C’s of Computing Use
    An admitted oversimplification, I still find it helpful to think of the history of computing use to have three primary waves. In the 1st Wave, the use was straightforward: Calculation. Whether to figure out trajectories of artillery, to support Manhattan Project, or manage astronomical math, it was largely a matter of numbers in and numbers out.

    The great Larry Josephson — to me the best radio host ever (he was real and honest and funny and groundbreaking and smart long before Howard Stern was the same, and I am a serious Howard fan too) — once explained his radio philosophy to me in two words: It’s personal.
