Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Latest trend among the small, independent holding 15 mins 54 secs
companies: launching a media buying operation.
Both Clemmow Hornby Inge and Engine are said to
be sniffing around for partners.

Adland is convinced that United's Jim Kelly and 1 hr 12 mins
Robert Campbell are going to join Grey. The story's
moved on from last year, when JWT was their supposed
destination. Anyway, for what it's worth, all parties
deny the Grey move.

Meanwhile, Good Technology, replete with its 11 mins 48 secs
Microsoft win, is moving to United's building in
Farringdon. Where will this leave United?

Set to re-emerge: Garry Lace. Yep, the rumour mill is 5 mins 52 secs
insistent that he's about to make his comeback.
