Some of you may remember Dave Wood, who was our first attempt to have a poet in residence on Slugger. He’s from Derbyshire but worked annually in Irish schools and colleges for about ten years. Unfortunately the virtual end of his trip back in 2004 was disrupted somewhat by server problems, though he captured some it on his own blog set up for the purpose. Now he’s made his own, very idiosyncratic video for the BBC’s Video Nation project in Derby.
Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
