  • Mark Walsh of OnlineMedia Daily reports on a new study that finds 'blogging to the most important lead-generation source among social media options.'

  • John Cartan on human-computer interaction: "Input methods are becoming more sophisticated and flexible (multi-touch, touchless, tactile, audio). At the same time, output methods are becoming both bigger (surface displays, electronic whiteboards) and smaller (smart phones, head-mounted displays, flexible plastic displays). . .Though these innovations usually first catch on in the consumer marketplace, it’s just a matter of time before they are adopted at the enterprise level."

Some of these patterns are service oriented forms of the gang of four patterns.'
