    Nice to see Nigel expressing sadness over the 'printing article that did not live up to what was promised'. Very few people these days seem prepared to admit that they got it wrong!

    BTW. What on earth is a 'content professional and camera/technology influencer' which we are told is Mr Devo's day job?

    It seems to be what used to be known as a copy writer and salesman. Silly title which makes me wonder how good he is at whatever he does.

    Well, if he thought up his own job-title, he's obviously got imagination and/or a sense of humour. ;)

    Jon is great at his job actually, which for the last few months has been managing the AP website. He was probably being a bit tongue in cheek with his job title, but he is also a freelance writer and social media marketeer, so he has many hats. Literally as well as figuratively. 'Content' is the latest industry jargon for what used to be called articles. But since 'content' now takes, and appears in, many forms (print, online, social, video) this horrible word has become ubiquitous. Some Editors are now called 'Content Directors'. Its a job title I would resist if I have any say in the matter.

    Ah, but how many can he wear at once?

    The record appears to be 33. :eek:

    Doesn't that depend on the size of the supporting object?

    Not a Nikon in sight, a man after my own taste!

    Content Director, dreadful term. Do they have assistant/deputy/sub content directors?

    All those Canons - now there's a man who's never heard the sound of a door blowing shut...!

    Cheers, Jeff

    Nah, they used the Nikon to take the picture. Well, it was still working...
