Open and close

My Harvard course on policy and leadership has now finished, and I have sixty wonderful new friends and colleagues from around the world- including Japan, Peru, China, Chile, South Korea, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Nigeria and the US…

Brian here is one of those, and is a 35 year old open source pioneer, having helped to start Apache, which is leading web software, and the browser Firefox (thanks Nimah, for the photo). His passion is keeping competition open on the web for consumers.

I have been getting summary reports from the team at home, so I know that there is progress across the merger work – next stage organisational design in train after the feedback we have, design consultants appointed for naming and branding etc. We appear now to be on target on plans, but, without all the detail to hand, I am off on holiday for a week with my family, on the coast of Norfolk, and will report on where we are in a good deal more depth when I return.
