Derren Brown serious thinking out of the box.
How do you off-set your carbon footprint?
I have so many! My iPhone at this moment in time, but my Aibo dog is super-cool.
Desert island objects
A flare gun, a sketch pad and a pencil, and my iPhone.
Financial Times, Wired, Heroes, I can't remember the last time I listened to radio? engadget.com, www.projectentropia.com, cool multi-user online game (not quite a website, but very addictive).

Most expensive purchase
My home computer set-up. It has more things plugged into it than you can shake a stick at.
Why are you good at what you do?
My creative, technical and business experience is pretty handy when I have to sit with clients, meaning I can quickly get to the bottom of what they are trying to achieve and help crack a solution.
