Podcasting From the CIPR

29.6.2006 by Mother Superior

I'm starting to look forward to the UKFast podcast from the Northern conference of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations on July 6th. When you think about it - podcasting is a perfect form for this kind of information exchange. The organisers will not want to reveal everything from the event - as it devalues the experience for the delegates. At the same time they want to create a flavour of the day to raise the profile of the event, entice professionals in the sphere along to future conferences and promote their remit as a resource for the latest information…

I read an interesting research paper on The Register entitled IPTV/VoD: The fall of content's kingdom this week and have been thinking about it a fair bit. IPTV will almost certainly be the way to watch TV programmes on your…

27.6.2006 by Mother Superior

I've taken an interest in the concept of Squidoo. It's an amalgamation of many of the Net's newest ideas. Something of a social networking site, a wiki, a blog community... Users can create a lens, which is a simple web…

Copy This Down

20.6.2006 by Chris N

So the 'Google Generation' (delightful, young people are once again defined by a multinational corporation) are all unabashed plagiarists. Stupid kids! Everybody knows the point of formal education is to learn how to conceal your sources correctly. From high within…

The Web’s ad Potential Finally Mainstream?

The potency of word of mouth advertising on the Internet is not new, but often for the mainstream to take the shift online seriously, they require a traditional giant to coerce them. That's why Proctor & Gamble's announcing of the…

A New Netscape for the Less Personalised Web

15.6.2006 by Mother Superior

My immediate thoughts on the rebirth of Netscape are that AOL are joining a selection of content providers appealing to the lethargic nature of Internet users. I can see Netscape appealing heavily to those who are not web savvy enough…

A Growing Business is Like a Starfish

14.6.2006 by Mother Superior

There's a story going around that Starfish have incredible regenerative powers. So much so that when they lose a leg (or a ray) they grow one back. This may not seem that incredible – after all lizards can grow tails…

Google Earth Song

What's the best thing that Google's ever done? Adwords, that's pretty clever if you're a businessy type. Analytics, that's pretty cool if you're a webmastery type. The search engine itself, that's pretty fantastic if you're any type at all (unless…
