- Inferno Communications has appointed Sarah Driscoll, the former editor of Computer Reseller News, as a content director. Driscoll started last week at Inferno's carbon arm, which incorporates PR services with other comms activities. 'I do not see the move from journalism into PR as crossing a line,' she said. 'It is more about using my analytical skills as a journalist in another way.'
