Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Technology Management.

In 2006 I wrote and published one textbook about Internet Marketing; and I am currently writing a textbook on Technology Assessment which will be published in 2008. The two books are used by a leading technology college for final-year Bachelors in Management of Technology courses.
