A dragon replies

I posted an entry yesterday about how you can drop from view very, very quickly when you turn off your publicity.

I mentioned Doug Richard, a former dragon on Dragons' Den to illustrate the point.

The entry moved Rachel Elnaugh, a former BBC dragon to post a comment explaining that Doug was still very much involved in the business community and generates his profile through other opportunities, which seem to be more focussed.

The point for me is that blogs can open up channels of communication between parties that a few years ago would not have happened. The same point is illustrated by the communication with US correspondent Toby Harden (30th January) who entered into communication with me after I quoted a story about him in The Guardian that proved misleading.

Blogging has and is changing the communication playing field: more democratic and interactive than could have been imagined a few years ago.
