The thing that struck me the most was the idea of wading through a mass of adverts clustered around your feet. I think it’s going to be much, much worse – we’re going to be swimming through them, and they’re all going to be saying, in tinny little voices, “Pick me! Pick me!”

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
