I often think that regulations, standards and legislation have extaclty the opposite effect to the one they intended. I've worked for a couple of organisations who spent fortunes on obtaining ISO9000 compliance only to go bankrupt shortly thereafter. In both cases it was the fact that they spent all their effort on getting their boxes ticked and no time on making sure their clients were happy. It's easy to have high quality processes when there's no pesky customers to muck things up :)
Then again maybe it IS the intention of the music industry moguls to suck all the diversity and creativity from the music we listen to???
Thanks for the new music for new music Friday tomorrow Paul - between all the music podcasts everyone has started listening to we've got a whole day's worth planned for tomorrow :)

If I remember right I think you did post a picture of your office a while back .. would be cool to see the picture again fella if you still have it :)
Plus Posh Bird needs to come back on to the show and tell us what she's been up too. It would be nice to hear from her again.
All the best

I love hearing about ISO 9001 audits. The single purpose of these things seems to be to get people to buy things with ISO 9001 audit logos on them. Somewhere, somebody is making a lot of money... and eagerly anticipating the client list for ISO 9002 audit logos.
There are so many of these audit processes that simply don't seem to be revisited. Here in the US, there's a new program on factory inspections. If you get all your documents in a row, have your application approved, and presumably pay your fee... you don't have to be subjected to an audit. You've gotten all your paperwork in, you see. What I've not heard is if there will even be an audit review process
Regulator - "Sure, you got all your paperwork done, but have you done all the work you were supposed to do?"
Factory Owner - "Does it matter? I've gotten all my boxes ticked."
Regulator - "Good on ya, then. I'll just go and have a cuppa."
Or whatever the American regional dialect approach may be.
I can only imagine the rampant abuses that will be spawned from there.
