Paul Carr had a great piece in Monday’s Guardian about the sanctity of the BBC – it’s value is in producing things no one else would.  He makes the analogy with the wool department in John Lewis – the huge range of materials. Who buys this stuff?  Who could possibly want it?  I have spent many an hour in John Lewis’ haberdashery.  I know what he means: it’s sheer wonderment.

The BBC is gearing up to providing some food around its content pages.  Telling its users how they are using the site; what they are consuming.  I think it’s great.  More!
