Change Doesn’t Happen Overnight

Interesting article in the Economist about the Paperless Office. The decade old prediction gradually looks like it is coming true.

One of the initiatives being discussed at the event is the ‘Your Mental Health’ campaign which has an interesting Bebo profile, where young people can leave anonymous feedback. Another event worth attending is the National […]
