  1. Having been inspired by the work of Steve Jobs and as I am constantly learning, I thought it relevant to purchase ‘Managing in the Digital Era’ (via iTunes for my iPad!). What a fascinating read that couldn’t be more relevant. For me, the digital era has barely begun and I join Nuno in embracing this. Exciting times ahead!
