Where it all began:
In this photo that was taken in the early 1980s I am "helping" my nan try to use a BBC computer. I seem to have been watching people use computers ever since!
After spending some time following the instructions, my nan famously said something like "Well it's all very interesting but I don't think it will catch on"!
My publications are also listed on my google scholar profile.
