OffComm News - - SUMMER 2013 - Ge­orgina El­ring­ton ed­i­tor@ Of­fCom­mNews.com

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!

Front cover re­pro­duced here with the kind per­mis­sion of James Luck­ley, ed­i­tor at Con­crete mag­a­zine.
