I've been thinking a lot recently about how to monitor, capture, measure and report. The good news is that there are ways of doing all of these. The bad news? None of them do it all.

It's not every day you see a politician using a four-syllable adjective so I clicked and found out, well, you probably know by now, that he considers … Continue reading The UK Election Headline Game: what do you think it’ll be tomorrow then?

This involves digging around the web looking to see where a client is influential and what the sentiment is around that client, compared to its competitors (among many other things).
