Will on the BBC


Yesterday started like any other day at NixonMcInnes; Will was running the ever popular Measurement Camp when he was suddenly pulled aside by our friends at Hotwire and asked if he would like to provide comment on the breaking news that Facebook had decided to change their terms of service and implement an ‘irrevocable’ licence to do exactly what they want with your content.  Facebook have now returned to their previous terms of use after tens of thousands of users said it breached their right to privacy.  Controversial eh?  So controversial that the BBC picked up on the story and invited Will to comment.  We naturally, jumped at the opportunity, it’s not every day you get to be on the BBC after all.  15 minutes of fame at last.

So Will had to leave Measurement Camp early (apologies to all of those in attendance and thanks to those who were left to wrap up the morning session) and was whisked over to Television Centre in White City where he was interviewed for the BBC lunchtime news.

Back in Brighton, the NixonMcInnes office and various members of the Twitter community eagerly waited to watch him on the TV.

Check out the Twitter chatter that’s been going on; NB this content is liklely to be out of date in a couple of weeks time.

Such an exciting and memorable day, we simply had to shout about it.

We are very proud of our Will, well done and many thanks goes out to Robin Wilson at McCann Erickson for the lead and to Hotwire for securing the opportunitty and organising Will on the day.

View Will’s stellar performance.

  3. Great performance Will. Excellent. Really liked the line about big institutions needing to move faster like Facebook.
