Media Things

I thought I'd use this post to catalogue a selection of my public stuff; Twitter polls and posts I've created that have engaged people, appearances in the press, podcasts and recordings of talks I've been involved in.

It's mostly so I have a place I can refer to, but hopefully you'll find some of it interesting. I'll obviously keep it updated as I get involved in new things.

Here we go.
