Hugh Bradlow is Chief Scientist of Telstra which means that he gets to speculate about all the cool, emerging technologies that will come into our lives and predict their impact. Aka, our very own technology clairvoyant. He is a technology “tragic” in that not only is technology his profession but also his hobby. His night time job is providing technology support and tuition to his three children and his teacher-psychologist wife who treats all technology failures – including user error and finger trouble on her part - as his personal responsibility.
