NUJ Multimedia Commission

The report is out! But, I must confess, I haven’t read it yet.

At the moment I’m trapped between writing up my trip to Geneva, preparing two weeks of media & marketing stories, completing the registration for a postgraduate course and preparing to go to Hong Kong on Sunday (I know! I will tell all soon!).

However, Paul Bradshaw picks up on some interesting bits of the NUJ report. Press Gazette also covers it and so does the Guardian. There is a lot I want to say, but I want to hold out until I’ve read the whole report (something for the plane perhaps?!).

Also, I’ve been really interested in the creative director for Birmingham debate that has taken place of late and will have more to say on that very soon. I read the posts by Stef and Paul with interest. There have been a few developments and I’ll fill you in on these soon too.

Sorry for the poor post!

Trip to CERN

Large Hadron ColliderI am so excited about this!

On Tuesday afternoon I fly out to Geneva to visit the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN).

This has come about because I wrote an article looking at some of the world-leading scentific research that was taking place at our universities in the city. It turned out the University of Birmingham was a team leader in the LHC project.

So I’m off to walk around a tunnel that is over 26km long… and I can’t wait!! If you’ve got any questions for the team out there, let me know and I’ll ask them.

If it’s a question related to physics, write it in the comments and I’ll print it off and hand it to them!
