Monday, June 30th, 2014

Sadly the IET has decided to close its magazine for teenagers, Flipside. The last issue will be out in early July. This is disappointing news.

There’s an app for that!

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

It’s interesting to see how B2B publishers are taking advantage of tablets to distribute their content.

I just want to spend some money!

Monday, December 16th, 2013

Popular journalist and part-time PR, Dick Selwood, sent me a note describing his frustrations when trying to find out information about various provocations.

Power Systems Design North America (PSDNA) will increase its print frequency from six issues a year to 10, matching the sister title Power Systems Design Europe (PSDE).
