I’m not a guy who’s big on predictions for the new year (and my sports prognostications are only mediocre), but I do enjoy reminiscing. So allow me, if you will, to wax poetic (sort of) on the year that has been and that wraps up in just a couple of hours.

I was one of 27 business communicators who took part in the monthly “Second Thurdsday in Second Life” meeting yesterday afternoon. We gathered at the Hipcast Expo Center, which is owned by Eric Rice, for a wide-ranging discussion.
