I have been accused on more than one occasion of being a technophobe. Which is kind of weird, given my profession. However, it is true that my mobile phone is usually switched off (for historic reasons—I used not to be able to get a reliable signal where I live—it is still only 2G—and I never got into the habit of turning it on). Similarly, I don’t use Facebook, I don’t text and I rarely Tweet (only when I have something to say, and even then I sometimes forget). So, it comes as a bit of a surprise that I am now on YouTube.
This is all the fault of Kalido: they took me out for a nice dinner while I was in Boston recently, plied me with copious quantities of wine and then interviewed me about my views on data governance. I guess I could write down those thoughts here but that would be just replication of what’s in the video. While I knew I was being filmed (the quantities were not that copious!) I suppose I thought of it as a sort of home video rather than anything that was going to be made generally available. Anyway, you can catch my thoughts at http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=53B96D702917CA64.
