The BBC Internet Blog is where "senior staff from BBC Future Media teams will talk about issues raised by you about the technology behind bbc.co.uk, our mobile services and the BBC’s presence on the internet."

Not only does the blog give readers the opportunity to see what goes on behind the scenes, it also gives license fee payers the opportunity to engage with senior staff working for the BBC’s Future Media and Technology division and to hold them accountable for the services they provide.

I spoke with Nick Reynolds, Editor of the BBC Internet Blog, about how he’s turning the process of finding and responding to audience feedback into content:

    Creating Content Out of Processes

    Robin Hamman interviewing Nick Reynolds on how he gets content for the BBC Internet Blog, based on joining, reflecting and engaging with conversations on the wider web. Proper blogging, not just using a blog as a glorified cms.

About Robin Hamman

My website predates Google by three years and I am somewhat nostalgic when I think about the command line entries I had to learn to control my 300 baud modem. For me, the internet, like the peer-to-peer dial-up BBSs that proceeded it, has always been social. We just lost sight of that for a decade or so when most people thought it was all about "internet shopping malls", inexpensive flights and cheap books. In internet years, I've been here a very long time so you'll have to forgive me if I repeat myself from time to time.

With 14 years of professional experience in the digital and social media industry, and a client portfolio that includes some of the World's most recognisable brands and organisations, I've built a reputation internationally as a leading practitioner in the industry.

In January 2014, I joined Fleishman Hillard as Director of Social Business for EMEA. Previously, I've held a variety of roles including Managing Director of Dachis Group Europe, Director of Digital at Edelman, Head of Social Media at Headshift, Acting Editor of the BBC Blogs and Executive Producer at ITV.

I hold a BA in Education, MA in Sociology, MPhil in Communication Studies and a PgDip in Law. I've also been a Non-Residential Fellow at Stanford University Law School and a Visiting Fellow of Journalism at City University, London.

Why cybersoc.com? In 1995, I tried to register, for the purposes of researching "ordinary users", the username Cybersociologist on AOL. They truncated my name and I stuck with it....
