Content Although social media commentary has saturated our technology news feeds, the BBC's Tim Weber wrote an excellent article analysing the various efforts of companies who adopt this strategy.

As a consumer, it is with some satisfaction that I read about the power and the influence that consumers "who tweet" now have over companies that could once ignore their unhappy customers, previously isolated from the world and in no danger of causing PR damage with their complaints.

The shift in power and the reported mismatch of timely reconciliation in the fast moving world of social media brings most misery to corporates who lack the agility clearly absent from their old world cultures. As individuals, we sometimes read with glee, how mammoths are brought to their knees, buckling under their slowly crumbling reputations that are subsequently picked on by that little blue bird. All power to the people - we're only asked to be treated right.

Content Just over two weeks ago, I accompanied Linh as she checked into hospital in the early hours of the 16th September. Heavily pregnant, she was not due for another 3 weeks and our combined concern over sporadic pain and other effects that she was feeling, justified the visit.

Llithyia Born

Four and a half hours later, Linh gave birth to our beautiful daughter, Llithyia Yan Yi Wu at 6.02am. She had arrived amidst a flurry of events that began with the midwife's declaration that it was time, followed by an expectedly quick, but nonetheless painful three and a half hours of labour, eased slightly by the warmth and comfort of the birthing pool.
