is worth a read...if you DON"T OPT OUT, they have they right to share your and your connections images and other data with advertisers.
I really don't think this is OK.

Ian Ritchie is amazed to hear that Sarah Palin has been booked to present an 8 part TV series on Alaska. EIGHT HOURS!! - jeez! - one hour refuelling at Anchorage was quite enough for me.

Did you catch the debate
between our three prospective Chancellors last night on Channel 4?
C4 News' Krishnan Guru-Murthy chaired an hour-long live debate between Alistair Darling, Vince Cable and George Osbourne, which invited viewers to send in their questions. The event drew 1.8 million viewers… Continue

Lifelong learning, flexible partnerships, collaboration as a default – all phrases I used at the recent Adult Learning in Scotland Conference. But what do these phrases really mean?
Firstly, they mean a small but fundamental shift in the focus of our attention: a redefinition of what we mean by success and effectiveness. Rather than ask how the institution benefits, we begin to ask how the individual benefits and to look at the greater… Continue

Picked up on this
Is this scaremongering or are we looking at something a bit more serious? I'm not seeing a lot of chat on this over here, anyone have thoughts?

At the Interactive Scotland launch last week the feedback from the floor was dominated by calls for high speed broadband to be rolled out across the highlands. If there is no broadband in the Highlands then Interactive Scotland becomes a msinomer for Interactive Central Celt - which doesn't have the same visionary Nation changing ring about it.
We once moved to the Highlands on the grounds that our PR business didn't strictly require… Continue

I think the intent here is good. But there are huge obstacles to achieving this as part of any grand plan. I'm not sure it's even a very good idea to attempt to do it.
I think we need to start with a much better definition of what we mean when we say "platform".

To enjoy the video and enter the competition you possibly would have to join 'The Auteurs' and have a facebook account. It's just fun!

Well, we all knew it was bound to happen sooner or later, and now it has.
In my day it was toilet seats, door handles, or, as many a mother would claim, hanging around with those girls who smoked and wanted to go up the park for 'a bit'.
Now, we know that was all superstitious nonsense, duff gen, not worth the paper it was printed on. For today the real culprit has been named and shamed and I think we can all agree, we had a… Continue

Social media sites are often hailed as the digital guardians of democracy, holding power to account and delivering news directly to consumers without the need for a journalist to act as mediator.
Yet political events of the past few weeks have reinforced the valuable role of good old journalism. On Monday, Channel 4's Dispatches: Politicians For Hire revealed secret footage in which politicians including Geoff Hoon, Patricia Hewitt… Continue

My good friend Woody

It seems a fair comment especially when governments take a high-handed attitude towards policy.
Such high-handedness can be seen in the way the present government are attempting to… Continue
