I will not apologize for being silent on this blog for so long…. No, I will not as I think even a blogger has the right to “disconnect” for some time.
I hope you had a great holiday as well or that you’re still looking forward to take some time off. For my part I have been traveling to the US and did a coast to coast trip between New York and Portland. At the same time I changed jobs at my full time employer IBM and had a lot of catching up to do but here I am again…
In the meantime:
- 97% of US newspapers are using RSS feeds now ! The Bivings Report shows a strong increase of RSS use at newspapers and the use of online video jumped from 61 to 92%. How are Belgian newspapers doing ? Well, that’s one of those projects I started but never finished. On my to do list… Feel free to help.
- A fake Steve Jobs Blogger has been found out ! The Media Guardian is covering the story of the Forbes Magazine Editor who faked being Steve Jobs and was writing a pretty influential blog called “The Secret Diary of…”. Here’s the snippet on EJC.net.
- The most famous reporter in the world is getting sued ! “A Congolese student has launched legal action in Belgium to have the comic book “Tintin in the Congo” declared racist and removed from bookstores.”. Read the story here.
Next to these funny and interesting stories I can also announce that I’ll be running a public workshop in Brussels in October (more info and registration page to follow soon) and that the China Blogging Tour is on track.
I am happy to be back, hope you’re thinking the same 😉
