May 1st 2009 – New May Day, New Start

It’s been a few weeks coming but we now have the new Blog ready to go, or at least we will have when we relaunch on Friday May 1st. I’ve always been a great fan of May Day, even through we’re just about the only country in the world to celebrate it on the nearest Monday rather than on the day itself! There’s been much happening and, hopefully, much more to be happening soon. In the last few weeks I’ve been to the Digital Britain Summit (great on hope, less so on promises!) together with 250 other people, including Lord Carter (no relation!), Lord Mandelson, Andy Burnham and the Prime Minister, no less, we’ve been discussing the future of green ICT projects and we’ve started on plans for a European Living Labs network on social media. Plus we’re looking forward to the launch of the Institute for Social Media – i4SM – in partnership with Manchester Business School (MBS) on May 5th. So here’s to the May 1st Digital Manifesto and all who sail in it! Back on May 1st.
