Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Dark days at Initiative. The loss of Vauxhall would be 39 mins 10 secs
a blow to any agency, but when it's the result of a
row occurring in another market with another network,
it's particularly bitter.

Hmmmm. Gary Sharpen. Where will he show up? 20 mins 59 secs
Given the mess at RMG Connect, he's unlikely to stick
around there. Few expect him to follow his colleague
Martin Troughton into double-glazing.

Second Life. Have you got your avatar yet? Boy, has 7 mins 4 secs
the game suddenly caught adland's imagination with
Bartle Bogle Hegarty and Leo Burnett each launching
spaces in the past week.

Cracker by name, cracker by nature. Sunday night's 31 mins 54 secs
revisit of the Jimmy McGovern series was a belter
