Over the next few weeks this blog will carry a serialised version of a book that was completed 4 years ago.
Ajit Jaokar, the founder of futuretext publishing company, originally inspired me to write this work under the original working title of Digital Eves. Ajit introduced me to Judy Breck and Karen Coppock by email . I contacted Jensine Larsen by the same method. Research and interviews took place and the work was reviewed. Due to various changes in our business lives the Digital Eves project did not proceed to publication even though the written text was completed in 2007
Following my redundancy from the Electrolux Group in 2010, I began to look at my “unfinished projects” which as well as some long needed refurbishment on my family home, also included a review of the research and interviews included in the work originally titled “Digital Eves”. I approached Ajit about the possibility of resurrecting the work and he kindly agreed that I could now contact other publishers with a view to releasing this book under a new title. However, having thought about the content and messages of this work it is my belief that this story is better suited to online publication.
The work has been retitled as “Soft Footsteps, a retrospective and quiet celebration”. Obviously a lot has changed in the world of media since 2007, when this book was completed (not least the total ubiquity of Twitter) but it is hoped that this serialised blog will be an enjoyable look back as well as an inspirational look forward.
The next post will introduce the work, it’s contents and structure. As they say, watch this space,
