Friends Making Moves (Oh, Yeah… I’m Back)

I took some time off and got away for a while, so that’s why it’s been really quiet around here. But, I’m back now. It was good to get a break and now I’m working on the pile that amassed in my absence.

Between now and the time I left, a trio of good friends of mine have made some professional life changes that I wanted to highlight, in order to congratulate them. Two are headed out of corporate life – one is headed into it.

Jeremy Wright left his CEO post at b5media, and has started netmobs, where he’ll work with clients, helping them to grow their business.

Jonathan Bailey has joined CopyByte.com and he’ll work full-time for the content protection company. He’s leaving his independent consulting business behind, but will continue to author the excellent Plagiarism Today and co-host the Copyright 2.0 Show alongside yours truly.

Finally, Jason Falls has started his own communications consultancy, after over 3 years at Doe-Anderson. Like Jeremy, he’ll be helping his own clients now, but more on the social media, PR, marketing end of things.

I think extraordinarily highly of all three men. I’m thrilled for them and wish them endless amounts of success!
