A Public Appeal About Public Photos

 by Martin Belam, 14 September 2005

If you've never visited my colleague and friend's Eyedropper blog, then you should do. It gives a different perspective on the production of the BBC homepage from the one you get from me - Webby is much closer to the day-to-day production than I am.

He can also be quite provocative at times. Currently following a comment piece in the BJP, his letter in response, and the response to his letter by Barry Beattie, he posts:

here's what I'm planning to do... in the sprit of openness and transparency, I'm going to contact Barry today and see if he's up for meeting me for a drink and discuss the subject further in a calm professional manner... Stay tuned to find out what happens.

I can't wait.

I also can't help finding it amusing that this has taken place merely a week after the Association of Online Publishers Annual Awards nominations included one for "the BBC's London bombs amateur video footage on its BBC News Player" as it covered the attacks.
