I am a big fan of US online retailer Zappos. Founded in 1999 with the goal of becoming the premier destination for online shoes, they have moved well beyond this point both in terms of product offerings and corporate stature. Through their innovative business practices, great customer focus and unique employee engagment methods (they were named as one of America's top 100 companies to work for according to Fortune Magazine in 2009) Zappos now occupy the position of one of the key companies to watch when it comes to developing best practice learning organisations.

In general, it seems that educators as a group are slow to adopt new technologies as invariably they conflict with the “cannon of convention”. There is often push down from above to justify the cost and criticism from others that say it is only the “latest fad” and will pass. Therefore, the role of the classroom innovator can be a lonely and often unpopular one.
