Hi folks. Thought you might like to know I’m appearing on BBC Radio Lincolnshire just after 11am on New Year’s Day1. Chatting with William Wright about what to look out for technology wise in 2013 (bigger faster better ?!!).
Worth getting up for I’d say, ahem. Will be on air for 30 minutes or so. whaddaya think I should be talking about?
Assuming you have surfaced by then and eagerly want to tune in the link will be here.
1 for the avoidance of doubt that’s the first of January. For our American friends that’s 1/1/2013 as opposed to 1/1/2013 – note day/month reversal.
Audio of a trailer intereview I did with the BBC last night talking about the rerun of the South African broadband versus pigeon race but in the UK this Thursday.
Update 17.20 15th Sept
There is a fair bit of media interest in this event with live radio interviews for BC Humberside and BBC Lincolnshire for tomorrow’s breakfast shows, mid morning and drivetime on BBC Lincolnshire as well as extensive TV coverage on Look North. The BBC main news website is also covering the event.
Look out for the rory&tref hashtag on twitter during the day. Rory and Tref are the two pigeons that will be carrying the microSD cards (Rory Stewart is the MP for Penrith). Check out the Cumbrian Rural Broadband event he is organising here.
On a side note we will know the exact time of arrival of the pigeons back in the loft because they will be RF ID tagged. I am expecting a convincing avian victory.
