Highlights from 2011

Posted: December 30, 2011 in Friday Guest

It’s nearly the end of another year and I had a terrific guest blog on the subject of collaboration lined up for today. Then I decided it would be a great one to kick off the new year, so you’ll have to wait until next Friday to read it. In the meantime, here is a recap of the entertaining and informative blogs from my Friday Guests over the last few months. Many thanks to them all, and to you for reading.
