I've had a real mixed bag of work highlights the last couple of months. Firstly I've been doing paternity cover for Jeremy White as Acting Gear Editor at WIRED magazine. Great to commission features, organise shoots, locations etc for such an inspiring title. Jan/Feb issue is all mine...well the tech reviews and product stuff at any rate. I spent a day in a radio studio with TV celeb and property expert Amanda Lamb talking all things connected home. All off the back of a study by Barclays Mortgages. Interesting stuff and great that people are starting to become more interested in smart homes - even if it is usually still from a 'wow, you can do that?!' point of view. And speaking of smart homes, I was asked to take part in an event hosted by EE looking at the future of connected home gadgets. A great day seeing how the general public perceive this stuff and asking what they would really want their homes and gardens to be able to do.
