I was invited to write a regular column for the UK national newspaper (Sunday Express) in the period immediately following the bursting of the dot com bubble in 2001. My articles were to try and reassure investors and commentators that the internet and all it offered was still largely untapped and that although sentiment was very negative at that point in time, there were many significant opportunities in the tech space that had yet to unfold.


The articles published (and available for you to read below) were written in a deliberately consumer friendly manner but what is clear is that many of my predictions back then have proved to turn out. See for yourself. I am sure you will enjoy the lighthearted style even if you don’t agree with everything I say!
