So why change the 38minutes groups?
Since the site launched and over 3000 folks have joined up there has been the ability to create a group at will. Over time many groups were duplicated or were left with just a single blog post and many were also created as a company page which defeats the point of the network as companies can be created as members.
The ‘wanted’ group has been a great success for its targeted ability to look for and find jobs, both full time… Continue

I had the pleasure of speaking with the lovely Anne Bonnar, a key player in Scotland's arts, culture and creative industries, last week. You can listen to parts of our chat below.
An interesting tangent arose, however, in part inspired by the entrance to the 'coffin workshop' in the basement of the Zoo Roxy (see the Lynchian surroundings in the video below) where we met. After a bit of animated discussion, Anne posed the question… Continue

On the legal Birthday of Creative Scotland I proposed the creation of a web 2.0 platform available to all arts and culture performances in Scotland - providing the basis for comprehensive listings and ticketing for anyone anywhere. As a counterpart, individuals participate in a similar web 2.0 set up. For me the interesting bit is not the listings nor the ticketing, as these are relatively easy to understand and overdue. The key point is the… Continue

I vented my views on this despicable programme on facebook last night and received a mixed reaction. Some people simply like car crash TV where people, usually lowly educated, are set up for ridicule.
This programme excels. In the sucking department.
And(seemingly) now it has gone.
I watched Newsnight tonight, aghast, as Stuart [sic] Cosgrove defended this vile pish.
Pat Kane, on the other hand, smelt (smelled?) the… Continue

The vision for Scotland’s Digital Media Quarter was put into sharp focus today (6 August 2009) in the shape of Ofcom’s sixth Communications Market Report, which reported some interesting insights into consumer behaviour around watching TV, using mobile phones and surfing the net.
According to the report, about half of the British public would give up eating out, holidays and DIY (which I get) than do without TV, a mobile and the Internet. I suspect the other half would then take full… Continue
