About I3


Managing editor:
David J. Skyrme


"a rivetting read and always useful in practical terms"
(Brian Nielsen, Principal, Nielsen Instant Knowledge Systems)

I3 UPDATE / ENTOVATION International News
was published as a monthly email newsletter on developments in the knowledge economy and related subjects. The final edition (No. 75) was published in September 2003. The reasons are stated in the articles The Future of I3 UPDATE and Knowledge for What?.. What Next?. One reason is that we now want to focus on other priorities, including improving this website.

Over the years we have received many plaudits for our insightful articles - see What Readers Say. Each month's issue had feature articles and a digest of interesting developments. See the archive for chronological table of contents and the contents page for articles grouped by themes.

In future we expect to send occassional emailings (announcements, articles, analysis) to those on the I3 UPDATE mailing list. To add or change your subscriber details click here (it's free!).
