I’ve found myself delving into several archives lately. For a birthday gift, someone had tracked down a 1974 issue of an admired comic character which really brightened up my day. Around the same time, my father produced an August 1957 copy of Concrete magazine during a parental visit. I was proud to see an invention by his great self on the front cover. Inside we discovered a news item which, coincidentally, is about an oil rig platform where relatives are currently working and also recently featured in OCN. It’s wonderful to see value being revitalised many years after the original publication’s debut, especially as the digital age has shortened most of our attention spans ( mine included). So, if you haven’t already arranged a free or paid subscription of OffComm News then make this the day to do it. Should you prefer getting your industry fix on the move, you can now get this magazine on your iDevice from our friends over at PressDisplay ~ or browse our archives online. Who knows what you might find...
Have a great summer!
