A bit about Chinwag

Founded in 1996, Chinwag is an aggregator and connecting rod for ideas and talent in the new media industry.

Providing panel discussion and networking events, aggregated blog feeds, events listings, email-based community forums, websites, email newsletters and consultancy for the new media industry, our aim is to connect people working in digital media - both virtually and in real-life - in a friendly, informal and relaxed environment.

Our first forum, an email discussion list called uk-netmarketing, is still acknowledged as a key destination for industry professionals. Chinwag’s suite of mailing lists has now grown to cover other topics including viral campaign launches, design, usability, web TV and mobile marketing.

In February 2007, Chinwag launched Chinwag Live, a series of panel sessions and debate designed to cast light on trends in the digital media and marketing industry. Events have featured a wide range of well-known digerati and generated substantial coverage, with each event sold out.

In addition, Chinwag publishes Chinwag Jobs, the leading recruitment website for online marketing, digital media, web design and technical positions. It’s used by the BBC,, Yahoo!, Vodafone and the majority of recruitment agencies who place staff in the sector.
