My Mate Dave

A brilliant piece of rebranding here. The confusion that comes from a sentence like this - "The head of Dave, Steven North, said:" - is fantastic.

Sorry all. Lack of internet and a new job have meant little to no blogging action. Relax though as all is well and I am fine, very much enjoying London and my new job. London is a fine old place – although the tube strike was not much fun, and the tube is expensive, as are most things, but so far I like it. It’s odd when the tube stops and there isn’t a sound from 100 or so people. I wonder if it was like that in the early 1900s.

I have already been getting busy at work, phoning MDs and doing interviews and had a nice trip to the Dorset offices too.

Journalism wise? Well shorthand is useful and I have had the pleasure of some very helpful PR people, so far…Free papers are everywhere but you have to give them some credit, they do cover all the main stories reasonably well and come 5:30 most people I see are reading them avidly, what it will mean for the future of newspapers I don’t really know though.

Lack of coherent structure here probably indicates it’s lunch time and I am just getting a blog done. I shall hopefully return to normal (ish) ways sooner rather than later.
