Episode 29: Information Pioneers launch

JMAC3230A rough and ready little episode this week, as our Roo - the edit smarts - has been off on a well-earned holiday (though Roofans relax: his past self does grace this episode - before he left we discussed Red Dead Redemption).

And while he was drinking in the Spanish sunshine, Leila and Dave were drinking in the complimentary wine at the premier of the BCS's Information Pioneers campaign, which aims to highlight the trailblazers of the information age through a series of films and a public appeal to vote for your favourite. The films are presented by some familiar faces (and an enjoyably hyperactive Twitter account) and you'll hear us hobnob with Ortis Deley from the Gadget Show, Kate Russell and LJ Rich from Click as well as the charming writer and producer team behind the short films (which are online here.)Screen shot 2010-06-03 at 12.01.44
