This week’s curator, Thomas Ridings, looks at the IT communications gap that emerges as businesses struggle to come to terms with their digital futures and explores how we can create a common language for describing digital. Thomas also gives an overview of some common themes emerging from IT departments who have already treaded the path, shares some related Shift*Base guides and picks 5 links for further reading on the topic.
