  • Rob Lambert was prolific in May, with this post on sharing information and communicating just one of many examples.
  • I loved the dashboards and representation ideas in Trish Khoo's post, here!

New Pens

  • New writing this month from David Greenlees, with a piece on the value of conferences, both to yourself and your employer.
