Your most recent issue contained, without a doubt the best mix of IT stories I’ve read in a long time. Please never lose your edge, or your taste for experimentation. It’s what will keep Digital Oman endlessly vital.

Congratulations on the interview with Omantel’s Sales Director, Marc de Marcillac. It was an intelligent and highly revealing read – it pulled back the curtain on Omantel. Moreover, the interview didn’t pull any punches and I applaud Omantel’s vision. I’m always curious to get an insight into how organizations like Omantel tick – now I don’t have to wonder anymore.

I read with great interest your Cool Stuff column – In fact, I loved the South African concept that allows disgruntled consumers the opportunity to anonymously air their commercial grievances via the web.

I work in HR and was fascinated by Mark Hobbs’ Technology Driven Human Resources column. HR is a hot topic in the Gulf and I thought Mark’s description of how technology is helping firms recruit and retain talent particularly relevant to Oman. I look forward to reading further installments.

I attended the recent e-Games conference ( organized by Knowledge Oasis Muscat and really enjoyed the Jamal Al Asmi and Ian Sharpe session on Gaming and Culture. So you can imagine how pleased I was to find columns by Al Asmi and Sharpe in the last issue of DO. Keep the gaming articles coming!
