‘Social enterprise has found a new home in housing’ – Guardian Professional
The Guardian’s Social Enterprise Network 
ran a piece yesterday about how social landlords are finding different ways to deliver better homes and stronger communities. My HCA colleague and director Colin Molton is quoted, alongside a number of organisations who have at one time been clients of my former employers IPB Communications.

IPB appoints new director
Speaking of IPB, it would be rude of me not to mention their news, and a huge day for my former colleague John Quinton-Barber. The company has just announced that John (who was senior consultant for three years) has been promoted to the board. I see from his Facebook entries the announcement was made on the same day as his youngest daughter’s first birthday. He has never done things by halves. Congratulations and good luck, JQB!

Squalid truth behind the Sun’s murder reward’ – Media Guardian
Roy Greenslade takes aim again at the tabloid press, and The Sun in particular, whose offer of a £50,000 reward to help catch Joanna Yeates’ killer is treated with cynicism. He should know; Greenslade was once a senior executive at the paper, when Kelvin MacKenzie (think ‘Freddie Star ate my hamster’, or worse) was editor.

Homes for heroes win £660k grant – Bristol Evening Post
I blogged about this fantastic self-build project over Christmas after working on the story just before the festive break. It’s great to see it win some more deserved recognition early in the new year.

‘The Splintering of the Fourth Estate’ – The Andrew Olle Media Lecture
I came across this on Twitter whilst having lunch: Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger’s lecture today in Australia about social media and its impact on journalism. I retweeted the link and it was almost instantly picked up by a former colleague who was writing a paper on social media for a client and was grateful for his insight. Sort of proved Rusbridger’s point.
