It’s a new era. Ben Davis, the erstwhile keeper of the interweb keys has handed them over to a new owner with a wink, a ruffle of the hair and a gravelly intoned “you’ve earned it, kid”.
“You know I’m five years older than you, right?” this newly-coronated writer replied. Ben simply repeated “you’ve earned it, kid” and vanished into the night.
So the gauntlet has been passed and I am the proud new captain of the interweb ship. My only hope is that I can provide you with a fraction of the joy, fascination and expert curation that you’ve come to expect. At the very least I’ll try to stop mixing my metaphors in such a bizarre manner.
