Among Esteemed Company

September 22, 2007

A quick note to any tech bloggers who may stumble across this page, practice using very long words and referencing obscure characters from Greek mythology…

The ranks of UK tech bloggers have been swollen by the first post from all round national treasure, Stephen Fry. Some may say that a first post on smartphones that runs to over 5000 words sets his own bar pretty high – the man is notoriously busy – and there’s also no predicting if Stephen’s blog will be a strictly tech blog. Although anyone who saw Fry’s incredibly touching documentary on bi-polar disorders (a condition he suffers from himself) will already be aware that he has voracious appetite for gadgetry, from the Apple stable in particular – Fry claims to own the second Mac sold in the UK (the first belonging to Douglas Adams, author of the Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy).

As you might expect, Fry peppers his post with the kind of uber-intellectual references that we’ve become accustomed to, even signing off with the ‘General Confession in the Book of Common Prayer’. Unusual, I’m sure you’ll agree.
