Questions  - 
 
Might be a silly question, but I'll ask anyway since it's got me a little stuck...While brainstorming a title for an event about digital, we couldn't find a replacement word for "audience".

We think audience is too passive to reflect the realities of today's digital user. What do you think? Can anyone suggest some alternative words? Thanks in advance!

Workflow Suggestions  - 
 
A workflow suggestion: by using the Agile process on creative projects like the Star Wars factfile website for DeAgostini, a fully functional website was created in under 3 weeks as opposed to 3 months. Case study on +SmartInsights blog.

Web design galleries are great for showcasing design talent and boosting web traffic. 
 
If you're looking to showcase your website designs/ looking for design inspiration we've found these sites to be good: thebestdesigns.com, webdesignledger.com, and cssawards.net. We've found that getting featured on their site brings design kudos and some decent website traffic! Are there any other recommended web galleries you would add?

The Flickr redesign - was it good or bad? Whatever your thoughts on it, I think there are some valuable business branding lessons we can all learn from. I share them in this guest post on +chinwag 
It was a long time coming, but photo sharing website Flickr finally unveiled a new look. But for a brand that grew from developing a loyal community, it has been divisive.Of course, a major overhaul of a well-known property was not going to please everybody, and users are always quicker to attack the bigger names.

Story
Tagline
B2B & B2C Marketing Consultant for Tech Industry
Introduction
Been hooked on the web since getting online was as easy as running a dos command and dialling up. Thankfully it's a lot easier to get online now. Achieving visibility online is another story.

By day I'm a marketing consultant for Microsoft and other tech companies. By night I'm all sorts of things* Occasionally I take on freelance work. Hit me up and see if I can help! 

Bragging rights
People say I'm a good cook, and that I don't seem like a lawyer (I now know what that means). I've also had the privilege to travel loads and meet some great people around the world.
