PR maestro (and an old trainer of mine) turned dot com entrepreneur Jackie Harris is in the Daily Express today for her new website - Rhubarb and Custard. What a great idea! It sells traditional british food to ex-pats. All the best Jackie.
Interesting story in the FT - the development agency Scottish Enterprise is contracting out an EU-backed project to build an advanced telecoms and broadband infrastructure across 13 national sites.
It's called the Atlas project, and its supposed to attract tech companies from gaming, software, digital and life science sectors. It's meant to start going live at the end of 2005. Lets see what it does to the industry up there
Phwooarr. Justin over at Retrospective Futureologist has pointed me in the direction of the newest toy robot to come out of Japan - Nuvo. This gadget looks amazing! Here's some coverage and here's the site form the makers of the toy. Will this be next Xmas' craze? (probably not, judging by the price tag being £2500)
Spin Bunny received a gagging order last week from solicitors representing a UK PR agency offended by a Bunny story, and seeking recourse to Bunny’s sources. The order prevents us from naming the PR firm.
The team behind Spin Bunny has done its utmost in negotiations over the last week to keep Bunny alive and reach resolution out of court. That effort failed this morning and Bunny’s only option now is to shut down the Spin Bunny blog in order to protect the anonymity of its contributors and its sources.
I have a hunch that all that's going to happen is another one will pop up in Spin Bunny's place. Let's hope someone else is willing to speak their mind, as it was certainly fun to read. :-(
- - Update 21st April - - Spin Bunny is back online again. Some say this was all an attention grabbing stunt? Who cares. Look forward to reading more truth about the tech PR industry though!
