1st: April Fool's Day

No, this is not an April Fool's joke - the time has passed for that.
A resource made as the basis of a trivia quiz - of course the emphasis is on London, and it's a little rough and ready, but it could be used for History or Geography, with a little tweaking. http://www.slide.com/r/QqIWfsQO1T-T6ksBBE1v6KwZJ8B_EoCD?previous_view=mscd_embedded_url&view=original Feel free to use the photos . It also makes the most of my poor photography skills. Not everybody in our family can be as talented as Mike and Elly :-)
Today I spoke with Martyn Laycock, and the recordings are (almost)! available on the Wiki. When you go to the wiki, make sure the menu has the "Side Bar" tab open, and locate Part 6: London Knowledge Network. I think I've got rid of the annoying bits now.
Martyn co-founded and is Manager of the London Knowledge Network, and some key points about leadership and innovation, and in particular the importance of modelling innovation, are on the wiki. He emphasises that technology in itself is not the determining factor in innovation, rather knowledge management is. He kindly talked with me for hours today, and reflects the kindness of people in England. More of that tomorrow.
