My Photo

Oxford England

  • The End of the Road
    These photos are separated from my Travels album because Oxford is something of a second home. I still manage to visit it several times a year. So the pathway between Manotick and Oxford is well trodden and I can likely do it with my eyes closed - and probably have on more than one occasion.

Royal Roads University

  • Hatley Castle
    This series of photographs was taken over the last few years. I have stayed at the campus of Royal Roads on several occasions and I have been repeatedly impressed by the grounds. They are in many ways a little-known treasure.


  • Kafka Statue
    Here is a selection of pictures I have taken during my travels over the last few years. I am very obviously an amateur photographer and it is not uncommon for me to forget my camera altogether when packing. What the pictures do not convey is the fact that in these travels I have met, and gotten to know, a great many interesting people.

Manotick Ontario

  • Springtime in Manotick
    Manotick Ontario Canada is the part of Ottawa that I call home. Much of Manotick stands on an island in the Rideau River. Interestingly, the Rideau Canal, which runs through and around the river, was recently designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations. So this means that the view from my backyard is in some way on a similar par with the Egyptian Pyramids - although the thought strikes me as ridiculous.

Great insights into *Content as a concept*. I particularly like it when you say "One way asks about how best to design and manage the content assets so as to be ready to support many different publishing channels. The second way directs attention to the processes whereby content assets will be assembled into, and published as, information products that achieve both organizational goals and individual needs."

So, *Content* is whatever we plan, develop, publish, distribute, and analyze, and *Information* is what the users get. It is like *Recipe* and *Dish*, for chef and customer respectively.

Hi Vinish

Better late than never...I just caught this comment. Thanks for your comment.

You have zeroed right in on what I think is the hub of the matter - understanding content as "potential information", as what we prepare in order to perform good information transactions. And the kitchen and table analogy is one that personally love. See my keynote from Lavacon 2011 where I take this analogy to almost ludicrous extremes:
