Evaluating the media: When things turn down should we take to the water?

PR geekiness - the tools & techniques to gain insights from PR exposure

When things turn down should we take to the water?

One of the benefits of Media Evaluation Research being based where it is are the pleasant sea views from the office. Over the last few days there has be a succession of rather impressive speed boats and gin palaces heading up towards the North Sea and we wondered if they are going up to the London Boat Show which starts early next month?

Either way, it is an interesting indication that there are still people with the money to spend on these things. Obviously the bankers have not been hit that badly! While the day job involves finding ways to measure the media I am continually amazed at the selection of meaningful measures out there pointing towards the truth. At the moment a good indication of the downturn are the relative absence of cranes from the city horizon, or the fewer number of recently registered cars.

Happy New Year and I envy you your view.
You may like to see what is happening online for the London Boat Show in a netvibes space I am experimenting with... very interesting for people interested in evaluation. http://www.netvibes.com/publicasity#Boat_Show
I enjoyed doing it.

Thanks David and very happy New Year to you too. I am still waiting to see the flashy boats zoom back their factories on the South Coast, or could they all have been sold?...somehow doubt it! I took a look at the site; fascinating mash-up of info which I need to take a far closer look at.
