This morning I attended a session of the Digital and Social Media Leadership Forum in which we heard all about IBM Watson - a cognitive system enabling a new partnership between people and computers. That's the official explanation - but in simple Keith-type language, it's a bunch of apps and systems that when you piece it all… Continue reading Computers taking over the world?
People often think of social media as being purely in the domain of the online world. And on the whole, they’d be right. But, let’s not forget the power of the face-to-face conversation.

One of them asked me about how best to approach broadcast interviews. He looked a little stunned when I said "I'd take… Continue reading Live TV? Anytime!
