I have joined New Exeter and posted some photos from the High Street

Could do a video but this is supposed to be a site where people are sparing with resources. Also I am moving backwards towards the Sony Reader so greyscale photos are interesting, as is text. Script or outline to be sorted first.

Invite has arrived to join a New Exeter Group based on Ning. It looks interesting and includes links to Phonic FM. I have started a profile and explained an interest in a YouTube group for Exeter. Exeter TV may eventually appear much like old Exeter but there is not much sign of this at the moment. So "New Exeter" is to be welcomed.

Meanwhile Facebook are still categorising people from Exeter as if we lived in Plymouth. How many protest groups need to exist before they check their email? Nothing wrong with people from Plymouth of course, just that something clearly based in Exeter is suitable for some purposes.

As far as I know there is still no support for Flash on Exeter City Council websites. Will this policy change any time soon? My guess is that YouTube will soon be better regarded and it will clearly be a problem that Exeter has not got more of an online presence. The animX blog has pointed out some animation connections.

It seems possible that mobile devices could be sold and supported online. Will there be a need for so many shops? The Express and Echo has closed the office on Sidwell Street and suggest using the website as one way to contact them.

Perhaps the local papers will have more to say about Flash and YouTube?
