Google Photos is like magic. It just made this image I shot of Dove Crag, Holystone. Its a special place with a pencil-thin waterfall falling from sandstone outcrops.There's supposed to be fairies roundabouts but I've never seen any.

Talking Twitter guidance for MPs on the BBC's Daily Politics show based on +Stuart Bruce's work for +Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) as part of the Digital Democracy consultation.

Summary:
1) Don't tweet when drunk, over excited or pissed off;
2) listen, have a conversation and don't broadcast; and,
3) build a network.

This brilliant guest blog by lawyer Victoria Grace follows my invitation for comment on media, culture and society from difference generations. It follows posts by Gen X Ged Carroll and my Gen Z daughter Ellie Waddington.

An excellent perspective. Victoria, you have given me an insight into a generation as the new evolutionary round of internet takes us past (you will be pleased to know) Facebook.

Communications and public relations is a practice. Research should be practical rather than theoretical. It should help move the business forward. The European Communication Monitor 2015 (ECM) almost achieves this goal.
Here are some recommendations for the future of public relations that weren't included in the 2015 European Communication Monitor (ECM).

The Sonic Pi programming environment teaches you how to code and turns a low-cost Raspberry Pi into a musical instrument. Sonic Pi is a programming environment that turns a computer into a live synthesiser. It’s the brainchild of Dr Sam Aaron at the University of Cambridge Computing Laboratory.

+Ged Carroll is a Gen X-er born between 1960 and 1980. We’ve known each other for almost 20 years and like me he grew up in North West of England among the twilight of the UK’s heavy engineering industries.

He studied in Manchester and then headed to London and built a career as a marketing consultant and planner. He’s worked in Asia, China and the US, and is now back in London.

This is a post about the development of the Internet and social media. Ged first used the Internet in his late teens and at university. He’s an early adopter of technology with iconoclastic tendencies as you’ll discover.

Big thanks, Ged.

I think (Aussie) Tony Jacques' Managing Outcomes: the enewsletter for issues and crisis management professionals is great. Maybe an email newsletter is too old-school for YOU though, +Stephen Waddington. (Tony does post issues on LinkedIn publisher and/or in various Group Discussions,, but that's about the extent of his "social media" participation.)

Latest issue here, Maybe apologising is not always the right answer:

In this guest post my 16-year old daughter shares her views on brand, media, the Internet and life itself. She wrote it during a week of work experience in media-land last week. It’s not all rose-tinted Instagram.

Nope
I'm guessing she probably uses an iPhone, so there is no necessity for a Google account. She may have no real need for an "identity" online, may use Facebook (probably) or twitter as an identifier.

At sixteen she's unlikely to be interested in, or have considered the circumstances where communication outside of "known" identities is needed or useful. TBH most adults are yet to have made that consideration: but as her work experience was in "media land" I had considered that a possibility.
