Last week Ofcom published it's digital blueprint for the UK. Interesting to see the potential for Big City TV, and also plans to improve local news. Interesting for me, as in my pre digital phase I started out working for a regional TV station for London. TV news is hardly local, with broadcasts covering large regional areas. A great opportunity here perhaps for regional press publishers to step in. Although some have been amalgamating titles covering a wider geographical area to cut costs in the current brutal recession. Surely this is the wrong strategy to compete with the Internet's ability to deliver information and news right down to a postcode. Perhaps a short-term essential move.

This week further news is due on broadband/internet developments.

These reports are welcome news, full of opportunity and development and hopefully great for businesses like Luca Media.

Bought my son, age 20, an ITouch for Xmas. As he is permanently tuned into his music, I thought he could do with an upgrade. Wow, it was the best present since his first Game Boy/Pokomon way back. It is so much more than a touch activated IPod, the gaming applications and broadband internet access make it one cool toy, and mobile too. Only limitation is that internet access is only available through fixed broadband accounts, and wifi areas. It was fascinating to watch his glee as he caught up on facebook one minute, gamed with someone internationally the next, checked out his semester schedule via email, viewed his fav TV and listened to music. It's the IPhone with extra cool applications. I want one now! I'm wondering if I need a laptop anymore. I have a desktop at home that I can prepare presentations on and download to memory sticks. I can email and surf using the IPhone. Apparently the IPhone is not great for accessing MSN Hotmail accounts though, funny that! 21st Century Growth Ad Monsters adconion Agillic amazon AOL apps aQuantive BallouPR BBC Online behavioural science Bladerston Capital blog-ola Bloggers blogosphere Bootlaw Brainient Brandcast Media BSkyB Channel 4 Charlotte Street Hotel Ciklum City Am Claire Paterson COADEC Codility CognitiveMatch com comscore inc Comufy Cowboy Ventures customers David Cameron digital Digital London digital marketing digital revolution bubble Doubleclick e-commerce Eagle Eye Ebay Email Eric Schmidt Erply EU cookie legislation Eyewonder Facebook FaceBook FCC Figaro Flattr Forrester FT Games General Motors generator global economic crisis Google Google+ Group M Professor Hargreaves Hulu i-level IAB IBC IBM SmartCamp independent Innovation Warehouse InSkin Media Inspire Conference IP ITV kinetise Launch 48 location targeting technology Luca Media martin sorrell MashUP* Microsoft Mind Candy MoshiMonsters Multiple channels Naked Play Neo@Ogilvy Netflix Now For The Long Term Ogilvy online danger online sales Online T's & C's online video Oodle OpenX Orange Oxford Martin Commission for Future Generations Parag Khanna PatientKnowsBest people Policy Exchange; smart cities ; GLA; Catapault; Bristol Futures; UK Broadband: Camden Council; Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis Postmates process Propel London Proximity London PWC recession revenue Rory Sutherland Seedcamp Shuttle Sky SkyPlus social marketing ROI social marketing systems social media Social networks Soundcloud Spotify Start Ups Stephen Shakespeare Stradbroke Advisors Sunday Times Tech Hub TechCity Techcrunch techcrunch Tess Alps The Europa awards ThinkBox Timesonline TV Genius Tweets Twitter Uber UCL; Sharing Economy; Love Home Swap; unknown unknowns;;; UK Trade & Industry Unanimis Unicorn Club User behaviour VAST web security Webinar White Bear Yard wordpress WPP Yieldex YouTube Zeebox Zonerider
