Have just come back from two days up on the Sunshine Coast, where I was a guest at Phil Sim's MediaConnect Kickstart event. Twice a year Phil gathers together companies from across the industry to present to a room full of tech journalists. This was my first time in attendance.
As well as showing up, I was also asked to speak on a panel regarding electronic communication. It was a good chance to speak to many in the PR community and continue rattling the can in favour of technologies such as blogging and instant messaging. By pointing a large group of people back to this blog as the best source of knowledge for what I'm working on, I've also probably created a rod for my own back in needing to keep this constantly updated!
If anyone wants to contact me by IM, please drop me a note by e-mail (I know, but I need to keep some barriers up) and I'll add you on to my list.
