My 2006 Big Brother story

Almost every year, I seem to end up writing something about Big Brother: in 2006 it’s a piece about the challenges of managing its mobile phone streaming service for ZDNet. I have to say I’m rather pleased with the opening sentence: “While fans of Big Brother are debating the exact nature of an apparent sexual encounter on the reality TV show, behind the scenes the program’s IT crew are worrying about uptime of a different variety.” For the curious, the encounter in question was oral sex between Jamie and Katie, something the story itself coyly doesn’t mention.
