I was at The Big Chip Awards until 1.30am, got a Twitter DM from a BBC producer asking if I wanted to join this panel, about 20 minutes later in a cab to The People’s Museum where the debate was happening, and 5 minutes later was sat in that seat awaiting the right ‘break’ in the programme to add Manchester thoughts (see better quality on Dropbox download):
Thanks for all your tweets, and interesting tweet from the host:

I need to work out what I’m doing with my software that’s producing such poor quality YouTube – sorry! Probably need to pay for better wifi at home too so it doesn’t take several hours to render at all…
