Whither Dunstone's blog?

What's happened to Carphone Warehouse boss Charles Dunstone's blog? He set it up back in April, roundabout the time CPW kicked off the whole "free broadband" thing, saying he would "update this blog regularly to keep you up to date with what's happening". Posts continued appearing fairly regularly - at least once a month - through the growing pains of the broadband proposition, but seem to have ended on September 1, which was more than two months ago.

So what gives? A swift call to the CPW press office reveals that Dunstone "probably will be posting again". "He will be providing further updates and will be providing further info on his blog," the chap on the other end told me, adding helpfully that it was "very much a personal thing for him and I’m not sure when the next update will be".

A more cynical mind than mine might perhaps suggest that Dunstone simply doesn't have much positive to report on at the moment, what with unbundling problems, the new stress of managing AOL UK's relatively tech-savvy users and recent tickings-off for making too many "silent calls" to the public. But, not being a cynic, I will merely point out that he must be a very busy man.
