The cutting edge of citizen journalism, 1996 style


I just found this photo I took of the Nat West Tower going up in smoke on 16th January 1996. Nobody got hurt, thankfully.

It was taken from the fire escape at Wired magazine's offices near London Bridge, using a very early digital camera I'd managed to blag off Canon.

Phil then dashed back into the office to stick it on his website, whereupon we emailed all our friends and declared ourselves authentically modern and digital, if not quite bona-fide WiReD.
