Whether it’s my colleague Jane Hart’s C4LPT site, Harold Jarche’s Adapting to Perpetual Beta site, Jay Cross’s Internet Time blog, Clark Quinn’s Learnlets, Nick Shackleton-Jones’ fascinating Aconventional site, or Tom Stafford’s unbelievably extensive MindHacks neuroscience and psychology resource (I remember Tom when he was just a schoolboy – we can certainly learn a lot from the next generation). Flipboard brings them all together under a simple interface.” Charles Jennings, 2015
