…and finally

well this is a bit odd. I think I joined a few months before the great crash of 2003 as lukeweb (and later Barney Boo) and mostly used this place to be unbearable and make shopping telly simulators. there aren’t many things that have been in my life for 18 years so that’s quite a thing, even if I’ve progressively become more of a lurker.

I should probably acknowledge the big role this site played in keeping my little anoraky secret alive, once I found out there were other people out there who were drawn to this stuff.

and having this place in my life probably helped me get the job at the place I always dreamed of some 14 years later (no, not bid-up.tv) so thanks everyone for that. terrifying to think what that 2003 cohort is responsible for now innit.

New Newsnight Studio

at the risk of massively derailing this topic, I've been using unreal engine for a (much lower tech!) virtual studio for my zoom calls and it's been working really well! (not sure my long-suffering colleagues would agree)

although yes it would have a bit more potential if it wasn't a locked-off camera in my bedroom 😊
