Despite poor progress, Lisbon agenda needed more now than ever, concludes Kok report

Yet the high level group clearly feels that despite the backdrop of a challenging global economic environment, Member States could and should have done more to achieve its goals. Governments are accused of not taking the delivery of commonly agreed measures seriously enough, perhaps because of a lack of political pressure from national parliaments and citizens who have not been sufficiently involved in the Lisbon process. Poor coordination, an overloaded agenda and conflicting priorities are also to blame, the report adds. The inevitable result is that many Lisbon targets will be 'seriously missed'.

Kok report calls for more determined political action to revitalise Lisbon strategy

MyNetAcademy in the spirit of a weblog/blog
A blog is a web page made up of usually short, frequently updated posts that are arranged chronologically—like a what's new page or a journal. The content and purposes of blogs varies greatly—from links and commentary about other web sites, to news about a company/person/idea, to diaries, photos, research results, mini-essays, project updates, even fiction. Blog posts are like instant messages to the web.

Blogs are also excellent team/department/company/ communication tools. They help small groups communicate in a way that is simpler and easier to follow than email or discussion forums. Use a private blog on an intranet to allow team members to post related links, files, quotes, or commentary. A blog can help keep everyone in the loop, promote cohesiveness and group culture, and provide an informal "voice" of a project or department to outsiders."
