Banks are braced for City riots during G20 summit after attack o The last time bankers faced angry demonstrations, some responded by pouring champagne or photocopied £50 notes from windows, but it is unlikely that protesters targeting the City next week during the G20 summit will be met by similar shows of bravado. Many staff are being advised to dress down next Wednesday and Thursday to avoid being marked out as City workers - if they cannot avoid the protests entirely by working from home. Others have been advised to avoid leaving the office to attend meetings. Concern about possible violence heightened when the home of former Royal Bank of Scotland chairman Sir Fred Goodwin was vandalised early yesterday morning, leaving three windows shattered and the rear window of his black Mercedes smashed.

Academic libraries and publishers: Working together in support of the creation and dissemination of new research knowledge and innovation Last month, we were delighted to host an event for our founder, Sara Miller McCune, to honour the academic library community. We had invited librarians, academics and senior university representatives from the UK and beyond to join us in celebrating the academic library, and to consider its future. The reception came at the end of a day of themed meetings for SAGE: a committee meeting of our library advisory board, a key group that supports SAGE in guiding our understanding of the changing library environment; and a round table discussion on the future of libraries in an Open Access landscape, hosted jointly with the British Library. Events like this are key in enabling strong communication between libraries and SAGE, to ensure that we continue to provide the support and services needed. We will be sharing more from both these meetings soon. We were delighted to have Dame Lynne Brindley, current CEO of the British Library, as our guest speaker at the reception.

Steven Spielberg and George Lucas predict ‘massive implosion’ in film industry George Lucas and Steven Spielberg think the film industry is heading towards a cliff. The pair behind some of the most successful franchises in movie history think that conservative programming choices and rapidly evolving distribution schemes have set the stage for a massive upheaval — and internet-based services may become the dominant medium when moviegoing as we know it crashes and burns. The duo were joined during a panel at the University of Southern California by Microsoft's president of interactive entertainment Don Mattrick, who played backup with the occasional Xbox reference as Lucas and Spielberg took center stage. While the focus was ostensibly on the future of the entertainment medium — USC just opened a new building for the school's Interactive Media department — the topic quickly pivoted to the state of film distribution in a world where everything from games to television are competing for consumers' attention. Moviegoing will be more like a sporting event

Is Social Media Making Corporate Websites Irrelevant? There was a time when having a dotcom was absolutely key to your brand, and once you had one, it was the URL you pointed everyone to in all of your marketing. But with the emergence of the social web, and opportunities to engage with fans elsewhere, is that really the right strategy – or even a requirement at all? You’re probably already noticing it – business cards containing Twitter usernames as opposed to domain names, bands promoting their MySpace profile instead of their own website, and even ad campaigns directing people to participate in a social media rather than visit a branded website. The latter is exactly what Vitamin Water is doing through a multi-channel campaign featuring NBA superstars LeBron James and Kobe Bryant.The ads themselves are hard to miss on sites like ESPN, with banners surrounding all four sides of the homepage’s content. Why Facebook?

We've done a number of sessions events now and we use the same format for all of them.
