IdeasFactory is a new website set up by Channel 4 to provide information for young people thinking of a career in creative media. The Scotland sub-site is now up and features quite a few interesting articles that make it worth while having a browse through the site. Of particular interest is, inevitably, an interview with ME ME ME about how to waste your life on a stupid music website and features all kinds of revelations about my dodgy past. Also good is Chris Mack’s diary of visiting Brazil and an interview (by me!) with local video interview website Triggertonic.

Okay, I’ll stop bigging myself up here.

Do also note that diskant is moving servers sometime this week (we already have the new space and most of the new design, we’re just waiting for the domain) so there will be some downtime and confusion at various points. Hopefully once we get ourselves organised some other diskant contributors might, you know, contribute to this blog. You really never know…

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
