Diary: Water-cooler monitor

What topics have the industry been discussing this week?


Shortlist mania. Campaign's phones have been 4 hrs 17 mins

humming for two weeks with theories on who would

make Abbey's and Sainsbury's shortlists. Now they

are set, the topic of conversation is who will win.

Easy Living. There's been a lot of hype, but does the 2 hrs 53 mins

magazine deliver? General consensus seems to be

that it's great for advertisers but only OK for readers.

Has Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO set its sights on St 12 mins 45 secs

Luke's? An acquisition would stand AMV in good stead

when BT calls a review.

What's going on in the soap opera that is Andy Law's 45 mins 23 secs

professional life? Boymeetsgirl appears to make

headlines for all the wrong reasons: the dramatic

exits of its senior management.
