Beware of SDN (Sheep in Digital Nitwear)

If you don’t know, the SDN stands for the Scottish Digital Network. When you hear the people, who are supposed to know, explain the concept it is still hard to understand. I am Scottish, I understand Digital and I get Network. But, it transpires that what we’re actually getting with an SDN is a SHINY NEW BROADCAST TELEVISION CHANNEL with some subsidiary web based stuff.



At the conference I was at yesterday, with the very sexed up Greg Dyke,… Continue

BBC: Money more important than children



While talking about Madonna & Guy Ritchie’s divorce settlement on last night’s six o’clock news, BBC entertainment correspondent Lizo Mzimba stated that the £50m financial settlement was more important than reaching agreement on their children.



Huh?



What does that say about our society?



Having just spent three years in court ensuring that I can be a dad to my children, at a financial cost measured in hundreds… Continue

Competition Commission 'bouncers' knock-back Kangaroo



The aggregated VoD service from the BBC, ITV and C4 has been sent back to the drawing board by the Competition Commission.



From the sidelines (for me at least), this appears to be a blinkered decision which fails to recognise that although the BBC, ITV and C4 are major players in the UK …the internet is not a country-wide medium; it’s a cross-border, global medium, with global players. This is something that Sky (one of the companies… Continue

Brand Values

Does anyone else think this whole ridiculous situation with Russell Brand, Jonathan Ross, Andrew Sachs, Georgina Ballie, etc., has become ridiculous?



I think it's a prime example of the media's narcissistic self-obsessed nature. The lead item on Radio 4 news this evening was about Lesley Douglas resigning from her position as controller of Radio 2 and 6 Music. First Brand goes, Ross is suspended then Douglas resigns too. The BBC Trust and Director General have issued statements and… Continue

vaguely tangental

People complain about blogging, citizen journalism and the rise of the 'amateur'.

It's nice to see the BBC tackle the issue head on.
