Welcome to this week's Output newsletter. Firstly, I'd like to say a big thank you and good luck to our deputy editor Camilla Corr, who held the fort for the past two weeks before moving on to pastures new.
Sadly I wasn't sunning myself on a beach during my time away but was moving house, said to be one of the most stressful of life's experiences. For me, getting the internet set up was definitely the most anxiety-causing part: despite assurances from a certain communications provider, I was left without the net for several days. Interestingly, this coincided with the 20th anniversary of the launch of the first PC from IBM, leading me to wax nostalgic about the days before the internet.
However, Output is testament to the fact that the world – and our industry – is now online, creating a perhaps faster and more globally connected sector. What are your thoughts and experiences of pre-net, and post-net, days? As always, let us know.

Last week, we asked our experts:
What kind of professional groups do we need in our industry?

Read and comment
"Surely the purpose of a trade association is to unite its members and bring something novel and worthwhile to the table which can't be found elsewhere."
