Why I Joined The Analogies Project

“During my employment it was a challenge to find different, interesting and informative ways to get the IS message across to people who, lets be honest, mostly just wanted to get on with their job. A former colleague, and contributor, introduced me to The Analogies Project, and it’s fresh and innovative new way of looking at our subject. I could see how this could help people continuing from where I left off, so the opportunity to contribute was most welcome.”
