Young colleagues may be surprised to learn that Andrew Henderson is a Take That fan. Less controversially, Amazon and the office intranet are his most used websites and photography his favourite digital diversion

“Said It All” by Take That.
What was the subject of the last email you received?

Social networking or face-to-face?
Face-to-face is the best way to get to know someone, see expression, and interact on a personal level.

What’s the best link you have ever been sent?
It was to one of those photography sites where weird and wonderful things happen and are captured on camera.

A handlebar bracket for my GPS. Unfortunately, there is no way of making that cool!

I once clicked a link, forgetting that my speakers were on loud. Luckily I saw the funny side of it, but now all spam mail goes straight to my junk box.
