This time a post not by me but about me (and Social Media Surgeries).
Go Compares latest 'guerilla' campaign -
I blogged about Go Compares latest billboard campaign which looks like their billboards have been vandalised. Have you seen one?

I was invited to collect an award for Social Media Surgeries at #bigsocietyawards yesterday along with John Popham and Nick Booth. And we were the first ever live tweeters inside Downing Street. Blog about the day will be up later but in the meantime here’s a pic of the pack winners reception (Taken with Instagram at 10 Downing Street)
Last week we (that’s Matt and I) went along to TEDx Sheffield. This was unusual in as much as Matt and I are never seen out together - at least 4 people commented on this as soon as we walked through the door.
I like TEDx events, they help to uncover some great local speakers and TEDx Sheffield did this brilliantly. It didn’t have a theme so it offered an eclectic mix of speakers on different subjects. I thought it did a great job of pushing the TED brand; diverse thought provoking talks delivered by excellent speakers.
I managed to do some doodling during the day too.
First up were the BBC Radio 4 Listening Project team. We all ventured into the Crucible Studio a little apprehensively as we’d been given eye masks to wear during the talk. If you’ve not heard of the listening project check it out here. They’re looking for people to have conversations.
James Jeffries and Leila Johnston - both Technologist in Residence at Site Gallery as part of the Happenstance project. I’d never heard the term ‘Technologist in Residence’ but it sounds fun and I could see why Leila and James were so enthusiatic about their project.
Giuseppe Ballaglia - Beppe is the Chair of Synthetic Biology at Sheffield Hallam. His talk was about nano technology in the delivery of drugs - at least that’s what I’ve decided it was. It was much more complicated and much more fascinating.
Erica Packington posed an interesting thought ‘Roller Derby saved my soul’. I know an enthusiatic Roller Derbier (is that what they’re called) but I hadn’t realised how much this tribe engendered enthusiam and community in its followers.
David Cotterall was the last speaker in this session and talked about his work as a war artist in Afganhistan. The audience sat enthralled and his conclusion managed to tie the whole talk up brilliant. I would really like to experience David’s work so I’m going to seek it out.
The speakers after the break Steve Coulson and Chella Quint both presented on some life experiences in a funny way. Unfortunately Matt and I had to get back to Leeds and we left before the end.

For Online Shoppers, Just How Important Is Free Shipping? -
Interesting factors that are important to online shoppers - unsurprising but useful reassurance and a good stat from the middle of the article “57% of respondents said they had added items to their cart not to buy them, but to figure out what the total purchase cost would be with shipping included.”
