The Faithful+Gould senior project manager on the joys of using BT MeetMe, his love for rugbydump and getting words lost in translation

James Buratti

What is your favourite website?

No one single site, more a range from the BBC for news to rugbydump for rugby, which has short clips from around the rugby world on it and looks great on the iPad.

What is your worst digital habit?

One which we’re all prone to – relying on e-mail rather than picking up the phone. Also I’m very interested in Paid Search (the ads you find on google) and tend to look at the agency website for industry updates.

Iphone / Blackberry / Android – which side are you on?

Definitely iPhone. I prefer it for getting around London using Google maps. Also, the combination of music, usability and compatibility with other devices for me is compelling, when compared to Android phones. Lastly, the resale prices for iPhones tend to be much higher than for equivalent Android devices.

Are you into social networking?

Yes, professionally with LinkedIn and socially with Facebook. I’m also a big fan of BT MeetMe which I use a lot, sometimes 3-4 times a day. It allows you to share your screen with clients and is a great tool for work collaboration.

What is your favourite app?

Whatsapp for instant communications over the internet, the tube map, Sky Sports and the game Cut The Rope.

What is your preferred method of communication?

Words can definitely get lost in translation, due to punctuation, different meanings, etc. I prefer face to face, but clearly email is extremely useful.

What did you last buy online?

A toy garage for my nephew and some jellybeans as a corporate gift.

PC or Mac?

Like many people I suspect, PC at work and Mac at home. Mac’s aftercare and support are excellent.

Guilty pleasures: Most played tunes from iTunes/Spotify?

I listen to music every day on the tube. Guilty pleasures? DJ Kentaro – Tuff Cuts. Basically anything with a beat.
