I had the pleasure of presenting with Helen Love today at the Social Media Forum and encouraged people to Love The Orange. The orange in question is that one up there - you know, the RSS icon. The room was full of media folks from some big organisations like Vodafone, ING Direct, BAT, Kone and others. You can find out more from the Melcrum blog.
We were followed by the wonderful Debbie Weil who presented some of her recent research on blogging. Apparently 85% are not using blogs. Wow! I hope we helped convince a few of them to join the blogosphere. We were both pretty forceful about saying GET IN THE GAME - people are blogging about your company.

Keep up the great work, and great information!
thanks Jasper - always nice to get positive feedback!

also makes it harder for people to say "send me your slides". The real content comes from the person (ideally!!) rather than the slides. I'll ping you the PPTX version on email
