My Interview in The Sun
See Part 5 of my HPANWO TV reportage of the Weird 11 conference: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.com/2011/09/weird-11-conference.html
My interview with The Sun was published in the end. I actually doubted if it would because I thought I did't sound crazy enough for them! It's in today's paper on Page 28 and here's the online version: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/features/3825936/Well-be-flying-at-35000ft-and-controlling-your-mind-with-chemicals-in-our-vapour-trail.html
It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but then again is that just because my expectations could not be undercut? The reporter, David Lowe, did represent my views fairly accurately. As I said in my video, the only bad publicity is no publicity and it's encouraging that the media is at least covering events like Weird. I had nothing to lose by speaking to them.
(Edit 2017: I've changed my mind on that point totally since)
