    Fairly painful to watch.... There's genuine humility, and then there's ....
    Other than this particular vid I really enjoy your light hearted approach to interviewing.
    I work in IT but am not a dev and therefore a lot of the content goes over my head by a few feet, none the less there is always something to learn and it's always a pleasure to listen to smart people talk with passion on their subject. Your approach to the interviews adds an extra dimension and balance.
    Keep up the good work Rory, your efforts are appreciated.

    Hi Robert

    I would agree with the point about 'briefing guests a couple of minutes before the interview, on where to look etc, it does get a bit tedious after a while...

    Please don't get me wrong, I am a big fan and think that you , Charles and the team are providing a very useful service and I enjoy the vids immensley.

    Please could you not steer the conversation back to yourself as much as you sometimes do. I think that we are all aware that you subscribe to 9 million blogs etc so we don't need reminding of this at any opportunity.

    You are sometimes guilty of interrupting your guests quite a bit with merry quips and such like. Most I suspect are not used to being interviewed on camera, and some are obviously quite nervous, so the  interruptions only serve to unsettle them even more and spoil the flow of the interview.

    otherwise 10/10
