Bebo, Blogs, Podcasts and Mikis..

I’ve given a number of interesting sessions this week. Two talks with students and this morning I met with a group of PR people in Dublin. Very interesting discussions.

This morning, everyone in the room had heard of blogging but only one person actually read blogs (though I’m sure they’re all reading this now..!). The count among students was less compelling with lower levels of awareness but more people reading them. There’s also a lot of interest in podcasting.

Interestingly the Bebo phenomenon -is everywhere. I believe that the website is now the #1 visited website in Ireland – bar none. Given I’m an old fart I’ve only come to that one late.

I also recounted my Miki story this morning and everyone laughed, so I can confirm it’s an Irish-only naming issue!
