Ross/Brand - how not to let a molehill become a mountain (version 2,137)

This thought-provoking blog entry by the BBC's Steve Bowbrick on how the BBC might have been able to avoid the media storm is well worth a look:

This is interesting for me: in my last job at Portsmouth students' union, I remember trying - and failing - to express as eloquently as Steve has exactly why openness in a crisis is A Good Thing, and this school of thinking - be open and honest with your stakeholders

Hero worship: Andre Jordan of A Beautiful Revolution

Insightful, witty, heartbreaking, funny, cruel, shocking, occasionally bordering on bad taste - A Beautiful Revolution is the work of 40-something Andre Jordan.

Plagiarising Warwick Uni's good ideas

When it comes to looking for good ideas for UPSU Media, I don't think there's any shame in taking cues from other FE and HE media outlets.

How (not) to post a video in your blog...

  3. Copy the handy HTML code provided by YouTube and paste it into the HTML editor in your blog,
  4. Click the "update" button to return to your blog's WYSIWYG view,
  5. Click the "save entry" button,
  6. Admire your...

Big Bother

(Off topic, and apologies for the title - it was the best I could think of...)

I've already said my piece about Celeb Big Brother's latest publicity ploy - the stirring up of a race row - but I think it's probably best left to a magistrate to put things into perspective, here.
