So, the MySpace page seems to be going well…
We now have 11 friends and I have received a few favourable comments about the idea but I can't believe that it didn't provoke more of a response here… I was kind of expecting a "why would you want to do that? what's the point in myspace - I don't get it?" so it was nice to receive some positive comments instead.
Our 'friends' so far consist of student bands (Jaffa Rose and Carter Manoeuvre), bands who will be playing the SU (Delays and Boy Kill Boy), PunkSoc society, Research (the new SU night) and a couple of students. Now I will just sit back and wait for some more friends…
But before I go, a little something for those of you who wanted to say 'what's the point in myspace - I don't get it?' but didn't... I received an amusing email this morning forwarded from an old friend of mine who produces University Yearbooks:
I would like to thank you for setting up a myspace page. This has enabled me to trace friends of your friends and discover that the world is beautiful by proxy…
mate of Ellie's… link
mate of Ellie's mate… link
leading to the holy grail of 'mate of Ellie's mate's mate'... link
Oh…...My…......God…..... and then check out HER mates!?!?!?!?!?!?
So as you see – MySpace has so many useful purposes! No, but really – it does…

Writing about web page http://www.myspace.com/warwickuniversity
I have been working on a Warwick myspace page… (gasp!)
With the growing popularity of sites such as Facebook and Bebo, it just seems another way to reach out to prospective students, current students and alumni.
Some of you may be cynical but myspace signed its 100,000,000th member earlier this month so obviously there is an audience out there. It will be interesting to see whether it takes off – and if it does, it will be another way to keep Warwick people connected! What do you think?
So, if you have a myspace profile… maybe you are a Warwick society or band, student or alumni?? Warwick University wants to be your friend…

It's funny how things work out…
Two years ago I had an interview for the position of PR Assistant at The Public Arts Centre in West Bromwich. Luckily for me, I didn't get the job.
The Public has so far cost £40m and has already gone into administration. In April this year, 8 people were made redundant including the projects Chief Executive, Sylvia King. Administrators, Pricewaterhouse Coopers said at the time that a further 14 job cuts were regrettable but necessary (BBC News Article)
There seems to be mixed feelings about The Public – the council support the project but members of the local public seem to be confused as to what or why the building exists. It will be interesting to see whether the centre ever opens at all…
The Public featured on the BBC News last night and seeing the trouble it faced just made me glad that I was never offered the job! It's funny how things seem to work out for the best – even if you don't always realise it at the time.
