British Library and Business

Paolozzi at British Library 

Earlier in the week back at the British Library for the second of their  Business Start-Up Day's (I was there at the first too)  - seems amazing that a year has passed since I attended the first one.


Something like 20 sessions (all free) to choose from I went to ones about the Social media Start up area as it's what's of interest.


Favourite of the three sessions I attended was Sam Lane's 'Tips for taking Photographs with Smartphones' good speaker and her points work for pictures generally in terms of pictures for Social networks. (You can download Sam's presentation here).

Taking the Leap Online by Sara Rego was good to as was The Google Digital Garage presentation on 'Building a Social Media Strategy'.

(Here's a resource from Google's Digital Garage).

Reassuringly one of the tips I picked up was - no need to blog everyday!

Getting it wrong


I was surprised to see that British Library has it (somewhat) wrong on the notes around Michelle the Beatles song written largely by Paul McCartney  -Paul was not an Art Student, as the note says - still great to see the song lyrics.

And perhaps it can act as another lesson in questioning what we see?
