Where's the Future? Or WTF? Is a blog that serves two goals. One, to create conversation about technology, web, social media and trends that are affecting organisations, government, small business and people today. And two, as a way for me to share my knowledge about the things I have learnt working with and for over 100 communities across Australia.

When it comes to making an impact, connecting and collaborating online we should all be asking, WTF? Or, Where's the Future?

I now have a new blog section called Hits from the Blog it's a shorter, more informal blog - I feel better about having a dedicated space that's a bit looser.

Unless it's one of my awesome memes, all images in the blog are from the excellent Gratisography website.
