Blog: Technology has its weak link too
Catherine Sleep | 20 October 2003
As the editor of a website, every task proved a challenge. I was reduced to dictating the weekly newsletter to news editor Kate over my mobile, and her workload increased dramatically as she handled the several hundred emails I receive each day on top of her own busy inbox. The only upside was that I was finally prompted to turn my attention to some longer term projects that usually get sidelined in favour of more pressing matters – but even this proved frustrating without being able to check facts on the Internet or email industry contacts.
One thing I learned is how important my colleagues are. When technology let me down, they helped me work through it. I also learned I need a whizzy-zizzy mobile that allows me to access the Internet…. well, Christmas is on its way, perhaps I’ll ask Santa.
