Happy Holidays

I'm just back from a monster Digital Vertigo tour of Europe, Asia and Latin America. The highlight was probably my TED talk in Brussels which got me into lots of delightful trouble. I'm taking a rest from speaking in December, but will be back into action at the beginning of the new year. My calendar for 2013 is already filling up fast, so please let me know if you want me to speak at your event next year. I'm now trying to do some writing. See my recent op-ed in the Financial Times about the role of software in the new industrial revolution and two CNN pieces - something on freedom of speech on Twitter and an essay this week about the anti-trust investigations of Google. I'm also enjoying my "Keen On" TechcrunchTV show, particularly my conversations with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak at TED and with that great techno-provocateur Ray Kurweil.

With the holidays fast approaching, I wish all of you - irrespective of creed (except Arsenal fans, of course) - a wonderfully happy festive season. Please keep in touch and I hope to see many of you next year.
