However, though this…Continue

So, some time ago I had an idea about getting social media used more at my workplace. It's been on the back-burner for a while to avoid clashing with our busiest period, but that will be drawing to an end soon, and I now have a whole lot more tricks at my disposal thanks to…Continue

An architect is someone who creates the plans from which others build.
An architect of buildings designs environments for living. Only rarely will they be designing an environment in which they themselves will be living.
