It was an enjoyable evening at the Online Information Awards on Wednesday (29th) though regretably we didn’t win in our category "Innovation in Knowledge Management" for the local government Communities of Practice initiative now being rolled out by the IDeA. ARUP won in this category; I don’t want to appear to be a bad loser, but I can only assume the judges for the awards did not appreciate the significance of a strategy which will encourage better collaboration across local councils and government agencies, leading no doubt to improved services and lower council taxes (well, I can but hope!). Anyway, there’s always next year. Watch this space!

Or perhaps you did not take the time to appreciate the complexity of the Arup nomination?
Yes, that as well!
