I'm always pleased when important BBC people use social media as part of their work. It's what this blog is all about. So I liked this image of Anthony Rose from Stephen Davies flickr stream


Anthony tells me that his conversation with Stephen helped fix the problem, which is even better.

People seem to respond better to pictures than they do to words (who would have thought that a picture of a man "benchmarking four operating systems" would have sparked a conversation?). Steve Bowbrick (our blogger in residence) drew this diagram of the obstacles to sharing he sees in the BBC...


... and it got a reaction, both on Common Platform and on flickr.

Cathy Brooks of Seesmic is "thrilled" that the BBC's Have Your Say is experimenting with using Seesmic. And there's a video!

BBC Backstage are sponsoring the Manchester "head" conference hub.

Zoe Kleinman who worked for the Internet blog in the summer is featured in this video on "Blogging for beginners". And yet alarmingly, at the same time Rory Cellan Jones is asking "Is blogging dead?"

As I was walking the dog this morning, I checked Twitter on my phone and saw that it was alive with comments about "the death of blogging." According to an article in Wired Magazine, Twitter, Flickr and Facebook make blogs look "so 2004". Oh dear.

But wait!

My response was to go straight home - and write a blog post.
