Several years ago, I met Matt Ballantine (@ballantine70), when he was working at Microsoft. Over the years, we’ve had many conversations in person, online and over social media and I’ve been listening to his WB-40 podcast with Chris Weston (@chrisweston) since they started it in 2016.
In recent months, I’ve been fortunate to feature a few times on the podcast:
- First, there was Episode 97, where Matt and I had a long chat about the changing role of a Systems Integrator.
- Then, there was Episode 100 (the book that never was) includes my “chapter” in long form text.
- And then, with my “I must read it again” piece about Clayton M Christensen’s The Innovator’s Dilemma (my original blog post about that book is still online too).
Appearing on WB-40 (and on The Flexible Movement) has made me think a little about maybe starting a podcast of my own. James Bannan (@JamesBannan) and I had a podcast called Coalface Tech for a while a few years ago but we found working on opposite sides of the planet and recording decent audio challenging at the time. At the moment I struggle to write blog posts so, let’s see if that ever gets off the drawing board.
In the meantime, if you’re interested in the intersection of IT and business then I recommend checking out WB-40, which will also transition from its online form to the physical world next week, with a live event in London.
