  • Will there be enough to write about from a European perspective?
  • Will the UK team meet the US edition’s standards in graphic design and increasingly rare moments of typographic brilliance?

  • Will we have to suffer politicians showing that they understand how online fits into their vision for creative Britain and trying resuscitate and channel Harold Wilson’s ‘white heat of technology’ speech from four decades ago?
  • Will they avoid the temptation to interview Sir Alan Sugar and Sir Clive Sinclair as part of tribute to the golden age of the British PC?
