IT FEELS LIKE SUMMER in my Irish back garden today as I give a quick reading of the Sunday Times and Sunday Business Post. I like the Sunday Times Focus story about "The Web Never Forgets" because it's a topic that seeps into the creative multimedia curriculum every academic year at Tipperary Institute. Ireland's Data Protection Commission receives more than 100 requests a year from people seeking assistance in removing online stories about their past.  Also in the Sunday Times, Sandra O'Connell explains how social networks could take over from the more traditional forms of e-selling. Anyone with a smart phone probably uses their online social networks more than they use their phones to browse to websites. My Inside View blog bears out this truth. In fact, this blog post will get more views coming from Facebook and Twitter than from direct clicks into my website. I'm living and learning from that but not fast enough to win a social media award.
