What's New at DeskDemon in January 2007
Welcome to 2007!

2006 was a rollercoaster of a year, with world events being characterised by uncertainty and upheaval. The issue of global warming finally emerged into the media spotlight and violence and social unrest has been an increasing cause of concern. To top it off, the Macca marriage broke up! But there are reasons to be positive in 2007. The need to tackle global warming and its effects is filtering more and more into the popular consciousness; there now seems to be a consensus that something needs to be done, even if the means to do so is in debate. The coming of a new year is always marked by questions of what’s come before and of thoughts of the future. Now’s the best of times to put fresh ideas into practice and think about how to approach this year in a positive way, learning from the lessons of the last year.
