March 2010 Archives
Call me old-fashioned, but I feel the so-called digital communications revolution we're living through isn't worth the paper it's, erm, not printed on.
I think the explosion in web and mobile phone-based communications is causing human relationships to fragment and weaken, and that's encouraging superficial thinking and stupidity.
We've created a world of Far Too Much Communication without considering the consequences. No wonder we feel jaded.
This coming Monday the Bards of New Brighton will celebrate three years of running monthly live poetry nights.
We held our inaugural meeting on the first Monday of March 2007 at the Ginny pub in Rowson street. We were a small group back then, only ten or so people turned up.
These days, there are up to 40 poets at each session, and we now meet each second Monday of the month in the big back room of the Magazine - a fine real ale pub in Magazine Brow, New Brighton CH45 1HP.
