Bad interview answer
I had just finished university, and the commercial internet was in its infancy. People knew what it was but nobody was really using it.

My friend sorted me out with an interview with the Sun newspaper, and it was to help edit news for their new "internet" project.

The interviewer I know think was Rebekkah Wade, and the interview was going really well. I was young and keen, and really good at thinking of puns for the headlines. But her last question was "what do you think is the future of publishing?" and I thought "fuck knows!". So I said "books". eh? "books have been around forever, so I think the future of publishing is books".

15 years of experience developing an online publishing site for the biggest news publisher in the world might have led to quite a nice job by now. Oh well.
