Story
Introduction
Been in global media evaluation and analysis for some 20 years. I run my own company offering real-time solutions for multi-national teams in this field called Media Focus uk. We will be launching a 'black box' style DIY tool in March that does all of the above by homes in on news curation - finds all news in any language, cuts out noise and only shows what is strategically vital for a multinational client's job
 
I have also been on the Board of Wikimedia UK for trhe past three years.
Bragging rights
Organised the only public talk by Jimmy Wales, Founder of Wikipedia, for the global sites 10th Birthday in January 2011. Held two events in a single morning that involved 550 children at a school assembly ran by Jimmy Wales in Bristol Cathedral. Followed by 750 people watching Jimmy at the Victoria Rooms in the University of Bristol, which was also streamed live to 3,500 people and has been since since by thousands more. The event was recorded by the BBC and released on an open copyright license - first time the BBC has ever done such a bold a daring act
