Round-up

10 Nov
  • The Economist puts blogging into perspective (Oh, grow up). It’s no longer new and exciting – but it has entered the mainstream. Is that so bad?
  • Facebook’s also no longer new, but it’s unquestionably popular. And it’s continuing to grow. The reassuring thing is that it does such normal, conventional things: it allows people to talk to their friends and form communities of interest.
  • I’m putting some time and energy into the PR student magazine, Behind the Spin after a long, sleepy summer break (what’s the summer equivalent of hibernation: estivation?). There’s some new content up there with more to follow. And we’re always looking for ideas and for articles; check it out.

    Looking forward to starting work on the spin if you still want your first year helpers!
