This week saw some publicity for innovation charity NESTA, and their push to get BBC News to spend some of its money on stories from hyperlocal websites and bloggers - something the BBC is already following up.

NESTA's CEO is Geoff Mulgan, once described as the ultimate New Labour-ite, who claims "BBC Reporter and Presenter" on his CV. The presenting seems to be editions of Radio 4's Analysis, and, on TV, a three part BBC2 series called "In Search Of Power", from 1996. There we find co-presenter Kirsty Wark, producer Richard Klein, now doing such interesting stuff with ITV Factual, and executive producer Helen Boaden, Director of BBC Radio and Queen-alternative of England.
