The BBC, Blogs, Forums and Wiki’s

    February 25, 2005

Not the usual TW fayre, but i have an enormous respect for the BBC – One of the oldest and most repected communications firms in the world.

And it’s not just ‘cos im British heh..

I think this piece on the Beeb’s use of blogs , forums, wikis and social networking says a lot. Most big media are still desperately trying to deny a massive shake up in the way we all communicate – but the BBC, ancient as it is, is embracing the new technology and all of it’s social implications.

Great stuff, and thanks om
