This web project manager had a requirement blackout today. In a meeting at the day job somewhere in Switzerland, I seriously couldn’t remember if the tool that I evaluated six months ago – and which I am now using – runs on a Microsoft server. (Err… Microsoft server? Was that a requirement? ) Sometimes memory […]
Cyberwiter posted the above tweet on using social media to enhance your company’s online news room.
