Things I've learned at work
Multitasking is possible - but only if one of the tasks is to tweet. At the recent Scottish Social Media Dinner, Scottish Lib-Dem campaign director Andy Reeves made the assertion. He reckoned it was the only time he could do two things at once: tweet a commentary and pay attention. I didn't get to see this in action as organiser Craig McGill had thoughtfully booked the bash into a basement where there was no mobile signal. However, it did get me wondering, is this the case? Are 140 hasty characters as rude and intrusive as making a phone call or doing the crossword? By the way, the dinner was excellent - food, speakers and interesting people.
Taggart's back. Six more episodes. I'm very excited - I've been a huge fan since the beginning. Excitement almost peaked when the crew were filming in a house just down the road here as I walked passed. So I'm a little concerned about how I might retain my icy cool demeanor if I bump into any of the cast at work.
