With a few exceptions, the world of internet marketing isn't know for its humorists. After all, if these guys had a sense of humour they wouldn't be able to take themselves so seriously, would they? So it was great to stumble on this post from John Muldoon at his blog "Bad Blogging". (He does have a "proper" blog - HERE.
I know single column sites are all the rage at the moment but I'm going back to sidebars. I think they are much more useful for a blog. And they look good on this template. The search link isn't working at the moment because of the way I had to set it up previously. I'm in no great rush. After prolific blogging for several years I more or less gave up a couple of years ago and used Twitter a lot. I hate Twitter now. It is so different from when it first appeared and I need to rethink just how I want to use it, if at all.
There is an opening for a different sort of social network. Facebook stinks, Tumblr is mostly a giant porn site and Twitter is full of celebs and idiot trolls abusing people. Pinterest is good, if you don't mind that it's stuffed with recipes, fashion and home-making tips; but then it is overwhelmingly used by women!
On with the redesign...
In an interview on BBC radio, Care QualityCommission chairman David Prior described the allegation that his organisation covered up failings as "shocking".
But perhaps the truly most shocking element of all this is that we are not really that surprised.
The findings laid bare by consultants Grant Thornton on Wednesday confirms something that is becoming clearer and clearer as the months go by: that the in the early part of the 21st century a rotten culture developed in the NHS that put the self-interest ahead of patients.
In short, the NHS stopped caring.
Peter Walsh, of the patient group Action Against Medical Accidents, says while it is pleasing the NHS is admitting it has a problem, he is still not sure the systems being put in place are "robust or proactive" enough to deal with problems when they happen.
"I am not confident we have the right systems in place, the regulatory system is still not simple enough."
It's not about having the right systems, it's about having the right PEOPLE. As has been shown time and time again.
