For those of you who don't know me my name in Simon Quicke, hence the play on my name in the title, and I'm the editor of MicroScope. As a result of being Editor it provides me with a position of being able to pull back sometimes from the coalface of getting news stories to look at the bigger picture.
Where is the channel going? where has it come from and what lessons can be learnt? are the sorts of questions I will be trying to answer. Hopefully as we start this journey you can climb on board and please feel free to comment and add your own voice to the debate.
