Last weekend at Stokes Croft Streetfest


It's nearly bank holiday weekend, and we're looking forward to getting out and about in Bristol to take advantage of all the great events on offer!

Recently, we've been working on a new website for a building company and adding a big photo gallery of the projects they've worked on, which can be kept up to date as more projects are completed.

We've also been working on new enhancements to the website for online Butchers Gribbles in Devon - which, in combination with the great weather we've had recently, has definitely been contributing to thinking about all the barbecues we could have this summer!

Here's what's been catching our eyes this week:

Over the last week, social media has been at the centre of the row about super injunctions, with the names of famous people being revealed on Twitter.

Now that users are being prosecuted for such infractions, Twitter has said that it will protect users' rights to defend themselves.

This interesting article looks at the issue in more depth, asking whether the law can really keep up with the way the internet is used.
