The Bone Steel boss likes the instant communication and access to news and sports the web offers, but prefers networking face to face
What is your favourite site?
I tend to mostly look at BBC Sport (news.bbc.co.uk/sport) to check out everything that is happening in the sporting world. But I read all the construction sites as well. I guess that’s a professional obligation.
What do you buy online?
I’m doing a lot of travel to the east at the moment so I tend to buy a lot of flights and hotel rooms online.
The last book you bought online?
Recently, I bought a children’s book online for my son – The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson.
What is your favourite way to meet people – social networking or face to face?
I definitely prefer meeting people face-to-face than networking online. It’s far more fun. I find it really difficult to drink a few pints online!
What’s your favourite online entertainment?
I have linked my Sky card to my laptop for when I am travelling.
I like to watch Sky News when I’m bored waiting around in a foreign country.
Do you have time for watching TV?
I only watch sports programmes and the news.
What do you have in your digital holster?
I’ve got three things that I use a lot: my BlackBerry, TomTom and iPod. I use my TomTom in the car and it takes me everywhere. As for the BlackBerry, well, I use it for everything.
What is your favourite MP3?
I’ve got about 4,000 tunes on my iPod. What’s my favourite?
Well my wife works for EMI so I would have to say Coldplay.
I end up listening to them quite a bit.
Email or snail mail?
Without any shadow of a doubt, life has become too short for snail mail. I have not sent a letter in the past six months. I use email all the time in the knowledge that whoever I have sent it to will have it in a matter of seconds.
