Everyone has seen it by now, the day when the wrong guy got on BBC News 24. If you don’t know the story back in May of this year a gentleman by the name of Guy Goma was at BBC HQ for a job interview when he was mistaken by a production assistant for the technology expert Guy Kewney. This led to the wrong “Guy” being interviewed about the state of the music industry and downloading music online, a subject on which Mr. Goma obviously has no idea about.
Goma has since been on talk shows like GMTV and Jonathan Ross for this little mishap and has gained quite a good deal of internet and media fame. All for the mistake of a production assistant who couldn’t tell the difference between a white person with a beard, and a somewhat overweight, heavily French accented, black guy.
This may seem like old news, and you might be wondering why the hell I am talking about this now. A little late for the boat, or maybe at the wrong studio- not quite. I am actually writing this article as I have just gotten off the phone with the gentleman who *should* have been on BBC News 24 that day. Guy Kewney IS the editor of NewsWireless.net and an authority on the online happenings. He is a veteran of the IT circuit and is also an avid blogger.
I asked Mr. Kewney if I would be able to interview him for SebRT.com and he is quite open to the idea. You can expect to hear (read) the answers to the questions that the wrong *Guy* answered on live television.
If you have any questions you would like to ask the real Guy Kewney please send them to my email *Click Here*. Please keep the questions appropriate to a technology / internet trends and culture interview.
Stay tuned – for the right Guy – Guy Kewney.
