PODCAST SHORTAGE

Posted by Neville Hobson

19 July - One of the things that continues to surprise me is the lack of niche business podcasts in the UK. I don't mean the slickly produced offerings from mainstream media organisations, of which there are many. By 'niche,' I mean podcasts like IABC Cafe2Go, the show from IABC, a professional association (and which I occasionally produce on a volunteer basis). Or Media Bullseye Roundtable, a discussion podcast on social communication.

FACEBOOK IS STAYING

18 July - There are those who don't like Facebook, far less trust it. And maybe they are right. My wife so far refuses to use it, and there are friends who still think it's the preserve of computer geeks or saddos. Maybe they are correct too. But with the platform now approaching 500 million users, its place in everyday life and popular culture cannot be questioned.

MEETING MANDY

16 July - I've just returned from a fascinating hour-and-a-half breakfast with Peter Mandelson to talk about his new book The Third Man. From a professional point of view it was a great blogger relations initiative by publisher Harper Collins to invite a small number of 'progressive' (the words of their spokesperson) bloggers to a breakfast briefing.
