Notable media appearances
This is a listing of the newspapers, magazines and radio and TV programmes which have interviewed me about various aspects of the Internet.
The Scotsman newspaper just called to interview me about Christmas shopping. They wanted to know why so many people do their shopping online – and what they should look out for in terms of any scams.
Had a call from the business section of the Reading Chronicle who want to interview me. Apparently they have been told by people that they really ought to publish my views…! Wow!
The features desk at The Press Association has just called. They are doing a feature for syndication to local newspapers throughout the UK on “Second Life” and they’ll be including comments from me on what the unreal world of Second Life means for us in the real world.
Interesting how things develop. The fact that I appear regularly in the media appears to have been spotted by at least one (very well known, international) PR company. They called today and asked me to be an independent spokesperson on a project they are doing. What they want to do
Earlier this morning the doorbell rings and standing there was a reporter from ITV News. After a brief chat we agreed on a recording that will take place later in the week.
BBC Tees had me live on air for half an hour today talking about “web revenge” – how people try to use Internet systems to get their own back on people who have crossed them…! I had a fun discussion with Alex Hall during her mid-morning programme.
Today I was on the BBC Ulster consumer affairs programme, On Your Behalf, where the presenter Linda McAuley quizzed me about email stress. I was doing the interview “down the line” from the Portsmouth satellite studio of Radio Solent. It was decidedly non stressy for me because it was a

Yesterday I was called by The Press Association on a story they were compiling in the vanity of social networking users. They wanted to know why so many people wanted their pictures airbrushed. When I did the interview, on my mobile phone, I was at an outdoor swimming pool trying
The Sun newspaper called earlier to ask my advice about a story they were planning to run. I was able to give them plenty of background information and the result was a story headlined Email deluge causes misery.
Just spent half an hour live on air in the mid morning programme on BBC Radio Tees talking about social networking. Great programme and interesting chat with Alex Hall about the future of social networking and how it will become important to all of us.
I was giving a talk in Newbury the other day and there just happened to be a reporter from the Newbury Weekly news there. The result was a highly positive article on blogging for businesses. I gave away my book on blogging and they took a photo of me presenting
“In the Know” is a weekly women’s magazine who called me up a couple of weeks ago to talk about blogging. Their article “Confessions of the housewife bloggers” appears in today’s issue and quotes me as saying that blogging can be as good as therapy for many people. True.
The Reading Chronicle’s Business Review monthly supplement featured my workshop on Internet marketing and how to make money from the Internet. It was a highly positive review of my work. Thanks. The headline claimed I was a “web wizard” who “lures the masses” – wow!
The McGraw Hill international weekly, Business Week, included comment from me today on the cultural differences in technological usage. I pointed out that the boardrooms of global businesses need a conceptual shift if they are to survive in the technological future online.
