    The dust settle all round my house after knocking down a wall in the kitchen today, and my microwave curry spinning round and round and round and round . . . . . . PING!

    Interesting, but seems more about politics than technology.

    Are we allowed to comment on that or do I need to start a new thread?

    I don't mind if that helps.

    Being polite, thought I'd better ask since the thread might only have been for things being watched.

    Virtual Revolution seems to me to be a Coffee Table programme. Since when has Bill Gates been an internet pioneer? Didn't MS ignore it for years in the hopes that it would go away?

    And what's with all the arty shots looking into the distance, through some foreground trees, listening to an American voice-over drone on. BBC thinks "All we have to do is throw in a little bit of S Fry and it'll be fine."

    Usual Saturday night rubbish - shan't watch next week.

    Well, I thought it was sociologically interesting, even if not particularly technically enlightening. Couldn't help noticing the Microsoft-bashing.

    And that's now 3 consecutive programmes with Stephen Fry.

    Couldn't watch it properly in the end: Relatives came round. Might give it a go of the IPlayer later in the week.

    Just realised he's also the voice of the book in Hitchhikers, so that makes 4! Must be Fry night on BBC.
