Toshiba ICT Redesign Award Winner 2010 David Mitchell www.DeputyMitchell.com "...Getting kids to blog is like getting over weight children to exercise by holding Strictly Come Dancing competitions: an intelligent and overdue harnessing of the pop culture that we can all we like but that remains the backbone of most people's non-working lives. Some stories make me really love he modern world and this is one of them. David Mitchell deserves a medal at the very least."
