‘Tis the season to write lists!

by: (Editorial Manager) on

There is something that simply cannot be avoided at this time of year. They’re on the television, in the news, on the internet – they are utterly inescapable. No, not Christmas music, but lists.

Lists are everywhere during the Christmas season: present wish-lists, Christmas card lists, shopping lists; lists for top 10 films, books, albums, singles, TV-moments and sports personalities of the year; lists of resolutions, Christmas number 1’s, news events and New Year’s Honours; the list is endless (so sorry for that one).  

Far be it for ICT to break with this traditional annual deluge of lists. After all, this is the time of year to look back and reflect on achievements and milestones passed over the last 12 months and what better to do this than in a list?
