Agora – the best of 2013

Well… this was an interesting year, wasn’t it? reviewing the Agora posts brought back memories about moments of revelation, breakthroughs, harsh discussions and many virtual hand-shakes. I thank everyone who invested time in reading, commenting, sharing, mentioning, re-tweeting, both here and in other virtual spaces.

The posts listed here were not selected via analytics. They are here because I find them either helpful, mind provoking or worth a second thought.

I wish us all an interesting, prosperous and a little more sane and peaceful 2014.
