We’ve been blogging a lot about Pinterest here at Journalista HQ. Partly as it’s so addictive but mainly as, for me, it’s the first social media channel that does something entirely different from Facebook.
Like all the best inventions, Pinterest performs a task that I was already doing but does it much, much better. My wallet, Moleskine notebook, handbag pockets and sometimes even jean pockets are stuffed full of pages ripped out of magazines, newspapers and leaflets. They comprise pictures, quotes, websites, products and concepts that I like and want to record and share. My dream house has always been designed with a massive cork board on the study wall to capture these clippings and link them all together.
