Diana: no wonder people are confused

I work close enough to Kensington Palace Gardens to walk around them occasionally at lunchtime. It's a post-prandial palliative for the pressured world of PR.

This weekend I managed to set aside some space to look into three areas in more depth: Web 2.0/3.0, Yahoo Pipes, and Pandora. It should come as no surprise that all three are linked and provide massive, oooh-hate-that-word-but-must-use-it, leverage (yuk) for PR. First, the web. My feeds have thrown up several interesting posts over the past week, … Continue reading Web 2.0, to Web 3.0, to Yahoo Pipes, to Pandora, and back to Life 1.0
