Happy New Year From E2

We believe wholeheartedly that community is about sharing the serious technical stuff, as well as the enjoyable stuff, and all the good things that unite us wherever we may be in the world.

As we begin 2014, I've been giving a lot of thought to what defines a community. One definition I particularly like is from the Oxford Dictionary: "A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals."

This defines what I see as the essence of EnterpriseEfficiency.com, and we couldn't do it without all of you. In the past year, we've learned from your insights and shared experiences. We've gotten great ideas from your feedback, been encouraged by your warmth and support, and laughed together at your delightful sense of humor. We look forward to further building our relationship with you in 2014.

We're using your feedback from the past year to shape our plans for 2014. Here's a look at some of the things we're looking to bring you in the year ahead.

  • Radio shows: We'll continue to bring you a wide range of radio show topics, from deep technology dives to leadership and career growth. Your response to our 2013 shows on mindfulness, for example, have led us to seek other speakers who can join us on the air and work with us to improve some of the less binary bits of our work lives.

  • Blogs: Our editorial team is committed to bringing you information that is fresh and practical for your work, through our own writing as well as through our work with CIOs, CTOs, and other industry experts. We'll use your comments and feedback to shape the topics we choose with an eye toward giving you information you can put to work right away.

  • Video symposia: Our roster of video symposia devoted to a wide range of tech topics will expose real-world situations and provide you with answers to your technology challenges, as well as career guidance for every rung of the IT ladder.

We'll also keep the fun in what we do with our Monday comic, our Friday Geekend, and our weekly Friday Chat. We enjoy these chances to have a few laughs with you, and we believe wholeheartedly that community is about sharing the serious technical stuff, as well as the enjoyable stuff, and all the good things that unite us wherever we may be in the world.

We're looking forward to another wondeful year with the E2 community. Thank you from all of us at EnterpriseEfficiency.com, and best wishes for a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year.

E2 is a great place to hang out and learn and grow--and read Joe's spontaneous ditties during shows! I'm really enjoying it here. I also wrote a quick-and-dirty blog about the definition of community...if you want to read it, it's at http://soozy.com/soozys-blog/#templedrama
