From our archive : Why the web’s mourners are dead wrong

Keyboard

It’s time to announce the end of websites, again. Forrester’s boss George Colony gave a speech at the LeWeb conference earlier this month [December 2011] in which he predicted the ‘death of the web’. In 2010 Wired magazine ran a piece by its editor headed ’The web is dead. Long live the internet’. There were others before, there will be others after, writes David Bowen in this 2011 article.

Newspapers

We live in a world of many shades of grey, yet the way to get yourself heard (and respected) is to be black and white about everything.

From our archive : What’s more or less important about social media

Crowds of people

I have been spending time going through many blogs that cover ‘social media’.

From our archive : What the conference gathered

Chairs

The overwhelming impression from our annual Web Effectiveness Conference – indeed, from all our meetings – is that people running large web estates share many issues, wherever they work. That was particularly noticeable this time because as well as our usual crowd of blue chip corporations, we had several international organisations, writes David Bowen in this 2009 article.
