Take a look at the fresh out of the box new +The Associated Press app for smartphones & tablets. I particularly like the new Big Stories section to keep track of developments in long running events like the Arab Spring.

Well worth taking time to explore this comprehensive study of global freedom of information laws by Martha Mendoza of +The Associated Press. Included is my interview with Tony Blair on why he bitterly regrets bringing an FOI law to Britain.

Hello everyone,

+BBC World Service celebrated its 80th birthday in style yesterday with some fantastic live programming. My highlights include:-

-The session with David Attenborough
-Debate on the future of international broadcasting chaired by Lyse Doucet. (Pop star Shakira also made an appearance as did Google News founder +Krishna Bharat )
-Great blogging debate organised by +BBC Africa
- Live music from Anoushka Shankar & Roger Taylor
(Just scratching the surface if I'm honest)

I've curated the day here on my blog with all the links you need to listen back if you fancy it.

Commodities industry reporter with Bloomberg News in Melbourne
Introduction
Commodities industry reporter with Bloomberg News in Melbourne, Australia, digging for news on mining and resources companies. Still keep a close eye on former reporting beats of British politics, foreign policy, intelligence and diplomacy. Tinker with photography and video for fun, ponder on how social media can improve journalism.
