What is your favourite personal gadget?
My Withings Activite Pop Smart Watch. Full act.
Do you have a favourite piece of personal software?
CityMapper or Spotify, it's so hard to call.
What was the first piece of technology you got really excited about?
Probably my friend's Atari. A lot of my childhood was spent on Premier Manager. None of it wasted.
What device improves your life most at work?
My Macbook Air. Boring but true.
What software keeps you most productive at work?
Clara Labs. My AI assistant saves me at least an hour per day scheduling meetings.
Is there any technology that has become extinct that you would like to resurrect?
Concorde. Fly from A to B but twice as quick. There is talk of it coming back and I can't wait.
Is there any technology you would personally recommend that you don’t think enough people know about? (Hardware or software, work or personal)
23andme. Reading this for me was like cracking the code of how and why I'm different to other people. I don't even think we fully appreciate the potential of decoding the genome yet.
Do you think anything about your personal use of tech would surprise your colleagues?
No, does that mean I'm predictable?
