This social networking is exhausting…

March 28th, 2007 · No Comments · Public Relations

Well our PR social network is up to twenty people.  We’re networking like mad. Nah… only joking.  We’re incredibly busy doing very little.  It’s fantastic. Warning: There have been a couple of posts on the network.  Don’t be scared, but do come along. Tweet This Post

PR: Asking questions isn’t terminal…

March 28th, 2007 · 4 Comments · Public Relations

Isn’t it funny how a little web application can set the InterWeb all a flutter? The bets are on, some people believe Twitter’s great, some people believe it’s a waste of time and some are making me laugh out loud. However, I was somewhat surprised to see David Parmet’s post - as I have a lot of time […]

There’s nothing worse than hardware envy…

As a self-confessed gadget freak, thankfully counseled and managed by my better half, I have to admit that the FlipStart PC looks rather tasty. Nope I don’t think I’d get away with that discretionary purchase…. Tweet This Post

Now if only there were flights at a reasonable hour from Newcastle to Dublin… Travelling for the next few days, but I’ll post some more thoughts after some […]

Public Relations Blog: 5 Years On…

March 25th, 2007 · 6 Comments · Public Relations

A significant personal blogging milestone has just passed.  I am now officially blogging for five years. If I had known then, that I’d still be at it five years on, I think I would have tried to make my first post a little more insightful, humorous and clever. Good lesson for life there. It’s interesting to look […]

Not a shock but sad…

March 25th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Public Relations

News that the print issue of InfoWorld is no more, while not a terrible shock, is very sad. Of course what’s sadder may be the cacophony of Web 2.0 folks pointing their fingers and shouting “I told you so”…. It reminds me of when Byte ceased the print edition. Man I’m getting old. Tweet This […]

PR Social Networking…

March 23rd, 2007 · 6 Comments · Public Relations

With relatively little fanfare and no spam we now have fifteen members of the http://onlinepr.ning.com/ social network. We are a unique social network: 1) We have no idea why we’ve joined (or even started it) 2) We have done no networking other than the (very) odd post and signing up 3) We have no idea what […]

IIA Event – Dublin

March 22nd, 2007 · 2 Comments · Off-topic

We had a great evening last night in the Shelbourne Hotel at the event: “Blogging: New Media, Business and the Law” hosted by the Irish Internet Association and Fleishman-Hillard. The room was packed (with everyone aware of blogging and an incredibly high level of awareness of Second Life…). Along with myself, Sarah Carey was her inimitable self, […]

Euroblog findings, connectivity 2.0, blogging…

March 20th, 2007 · 3 Comments · Public Relations

Euroblog 2007 Findings Philip has published some results from this year’s Euroblog survey of over 400 professional communicators across 30 countries. 85% of respondents believe that weblogs and social software are revolutionizing the way we communicate.

Twitter is changing the world? C’mon now…

March 20th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Social Media

I added Twitter to this blog about eight weeks ago. I thought it was a useful little applet to provide visitors to this site with an idea of whether I was around, on vacation, travelling etc.  That’s about it. Now it seems it’s the hottest thing on the Interweb. For the love of jebus. This […]
