I was delighted with yesterday's annual lecture and the dinner afterwards. The turn-out was excellent and the arrangements all ran smoothly. Martha Lane Fox gave an excellent lecture.
Given her theme of the UK becoming an excellent digital nation, I though I might share with you a 'tweet' that Martha sent just before the lecture, which ran as follows:
Off to talk at the worshipful company of stationers dinner. Not as old fashioned as they sound - 200 people from print industries...
I was pleased that someone who was in the audience last night had tweeted her back saying how much he was looking forward to hearing her lecture. Martha also mentioned in her lecture that she had spotted that the Company had a Facebook page!
This all goes to show that the Company is slowly, and perhaps rather tentatively, moving into the age of social networking. Deborah Rea and I will be working on this over the coming weeks and I hope that we will make the bold step of not just having a Twitter account and a Facebook page but actuallly using them!!!!
