Lying In The Gutters – 5th March 2012

Link to the above can be found here… Very happy to welcome Lee Barnett to Bleeding Cool this week with his new column, The Adult In The Room. That’s how I’ve often felt about Budgie, he’s an accountant or something, knows lots of legal stuff, and when he joins us for drinks, he’s basically the one we turn to to decide any argument. I do hope he’ll provide the same sense of gravitas to this website. Heaven knows we need it.
