Hello everyone! I'm currently bashing this out on one of the two massively popular open-access laptops provided at the NUSSL convention
The office is empty and so quiet it feels like everything's fallen asleep - apart from me and my cup of tea - and once I've cleared my desk and finished playing this Paul Van Dyk mix at ASBO volume, I too am going to be packing up and clearing off home until the start of January.
The Freshers' Ball line-up - happening on Saturday 20th October - was announced today and I have to say that, with its diverse and slightly eclectic line-up, I'm actually pretty excited about the night. (Sorry for the little plug, but I'm only saying it 'cos I think it's true...!)
Too much going on at the moment to get my head around, and even more I can't begin to work on because I just don't have time...
iMacs are here, Media Exec is well underway, wallplanner is back from print, Directory is being worked on at the moment, Pompey Guide ... I have no idea what's happening with the Pompey Guide at the moment... Fraggy is back working for us... Did I mention the iMacs? ;o)
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.
Warwick Uni has a very large base of staff and student blogs on their webpages, with articles ranging from music to democracy and everything in-between. The content is also largely well-written (which makes a change to some of the gumph I spout on these pages ;o).
