Enjoy Yourself @NomadicJohn Nokia’s John Pope (semi) Retires.
Over the weekend my Twitter timeline was awash with people wishing @NomadicJohn (formerly @JohnatNokia) well, and the hashtag #stillaroundjustnotasmuch kept appearing. The reason, John Pope, head of Nokia’s Conversations blog is semi retired.
