What then will 2013 bring? Who are going to be the key people that we will be talking about in tech, sport and style?
Our rather small panel of Brandish writers got together then to name the 15 people we think are going to have a very good year in 2013. Some have achieved incredible things already, others will become much higher profile next year. We may of course be way off the mark, but at this point if we were betting men these are the 15 we’d be slapping the cash on.
So here’s the list. Who have we missed?
Warburton is the presenter of Five Live's Saturday Edition, an evening show which majors on tech and web culture and is well worth staying in for. He is warm and witty and either loves his tech (or is very well briefed). Five Live are using him in other slots now too, so a career as the new Peter Allen beckons.
