Mike Butcher is the UK's leading new media journalist and is something of an industry legend. However, Mike has been much more than simply a superb chronicler of the last decade. As commentator, futurologist and passionate advocate he has helped to shape today's new media industry, and has got a better idea than almost anyone of where we will be tomorrow.
