me 2010 

‘Good News’ is a very subjective concept so it might be useful for you to know a bit about me.

My background is in librarianship, mainly in further education, university and research libraries. I qualified as a Chartered Librarian in 1985 and completed my BSc (Hons) Computer Science in 2000, so I’ve been using the Internet for research ever since the advent of the World Wide Web in the early 1990s.

My first library job was at the Independent Broadcasting Authority (1976-81) and it was there that I realised how differently each newspaper reported each news item. We used to speed-read all the UK national newspapers every morning and produce a bulletin of newspaper cuttings related to broadcasting for internal distribution. I soon learnt that what gets reported, the bias and detail of the story and the priority of placement within the newspaper is determined by the editors and not necessarily by the news-worthiness of the item.

My aim here is to raise the awareness of good news that gets reported in the press and do my teeny tiny bit to create a happier and healthier world. As Confucius say “It is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness”!
.. to which Mª Carmen Pueyo, from Spain replied “Thanks for lighting small candles instead of cursing darkness. I see you from here. Keep on. La luz es buena en cualquier lámpara que brille.

Have a good week!
