Well then - good luck to David Parkin, former Business Editor of the Yorkshire Post on the launch of his new venture TheBusinessDesk.com.
We have known David for more years than he cares to remember. He is a talented journalist and commentator with a canny knack of understanding what the Yorkshire region and its business community is interested in. TheBusinessDesk is still very much a Alpha business, given that it is all produced online but if David can get the right handle on the business he will do well.
It will be interesting to see how he adopts new social media tools into the site. At present there is nothing for Digg, Technorati or Del.icoi.us to excite the hardened social media junkie but I am sure that will come.
So good luck to Parky - he launches TheBusinessDesk on 19.11.07.
