    Good interview. Even better live at the National Digital Conference in Billingsgate yesterday!

    Yes, it was a good interview, and while I agree it is right for you to promote the internet you must, at the same time, be honest in declaring it to be a den of theives and that to enter therein without protection is just plain reckless.

    Martha's interview was really about digital inclusion, getting everyone on-line, and that includes people with disabilities.
    So it is very disappointing that the BCS put up the interview which is in a format that cannot be used by:
    - The deaf, or hard of hearing, because there is no captioning or transcript
    - The visually impaired, because all the questions were just text, and so it is difficult to know what Martha was answering. I am not blind but I found the switch from voice (Martha) to text on screen difficult, besides anything I had to concentrate on the screen all the time. I would suggest modifying the interview so that the interviewee reads out the questions when they are on screen.
