May you live in interesting times

06 June 2008

Hello everyone.

By way of introduction, my name is Matt and I am a bit of a geek. Quite a bit of a geek, as it turns out. From borrowing my Dad’s modem in the 80s to connect to bulletin boards through to getting involved with Twitter, I’ve always been fascinated by the capacity for technology to shrink the world.

It’s no secret that we’re living in a remarkable age. We’re witnessing the democratisation of media and are faced with a constant onslaught of new tools to help us – as human beings – keep in contact with each other.

In terms of social change, I strongly feel that history will look back on the current era as just as revolutionary as the invention of the press in the 15th century AD. It’s wonderful to be a part of it.

This blog will track trends and exciting developments in digital communications and attempt to add some analysis of what it means for the world of PR.

I welcome your comments and, of course, collective conversation.

    Hi Matt

    Would you be able to view a 1mins 40seconds audiovisual message with my request for recording your June 25th webinar – or similar in the format demonstrated for Deakin University Public Relations students?

    Cheers

    Hi Matt,

    I listened in on your webinar today on ‘ PR in a converging world’ and found it extremely interesting – i am in my final year of studying public relations and organisational communication at Charles Sturt University, Bathurst. I am in the period where i am looking around for internships and figuring out the direction i want to take in PR. I am really interested in learning more about digital PR – i would love to head towards this area and perhaps one day become some expert!!!! could you suggest any extra courses or give me any advice in learning more about digital PR? my email is lizhewson@hotmail.com – that would be fantastic…

    kind regards

    Liz Hewson
