“My work as a journalist has taken me all over the world – down potholes, up in air balloons, across Norway’s Hardanger plateau, in a dug-out canoe up Venezuela’s Caura River. Topics I’ve covered range from the history of ‘Motorway 1’ to the huge and pressing social problem of ‘digital exclusion’: what it is, how it’s happened, and what can be done to help.”
