FreePint Newsletter

Newsletter No.400
5th June 2014

Happy 400th Birthday to the FreePint Newsletter!

William HannTwice a month for 16 years, this newsletter has aimed to provide practical advice on getting the best value from information for your organisation. This has only been possible due to your engagement with us, so a big birthday "thank you" to you.

Feeling nostalgic? If you've been reading since the early days, review the birth announcement of "half pint", who turns 16 in a few days, and is in the middle of her GCSE exams. Feeling old?

My colleague Robin Neidorf will soon be meeting FreePint customers at the SLA Annual Conference in Vancouver, Canada.

As well as running an informal session for FreePint customers, contributors and partners, Robin is once again part of the regular panel at the Content Buyer's Breakfast, along with Bill Noorlander of BST America and Frank Filippo of Dow Jones, with Craig Wingrove of KPMG moderating.

Robin wants to hear what "must have" insight we can provide you, to make information more central and strategic to your organisation. Whether you'll be at the conference and would like to meet, or can't attend but want to direct our focus, email

Alas, international (or even domestic) travel isn't in everyone's financial or time budget. The latest FreePint Subscription Update covers our forthcoming teleconference sessions on information value, and our webinar Strategic View on Value and Collection Management (June 18th). Open to anyone with a FreePint Subscription, we've already added a second session in early July due to the initial response.

For 16 years we've been aiming to truly share your objectives for meaningful (and practical!) discussion around information sources, technology and value.

We invite your continued engagement through the next 400 FreePint Newsletters, where we'll continue to work hard on providing our unique content, community and consulting as our industry evolves.
