WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
3 is the magic number. It's only February, but one of 1 hr 28 mins

2007: the year UK digital communications began to 1 hr 9 mins

Agency.com takes Ikea from its above-the-line brethren;

in King's Cross are working on a BT brief.
