Reality in Review: December 2008

As the year and the decade (scary thought, innit?) begin, it’s time to look back at another month of blog posts. This time, let’s look back at December 2008, a nice little month for this blog.
It started out with a bang, with a discussion of leadership. I’d spent a while thinking about forms of leadership, [...]

Reality in Review: November 2008
