“It’s being able to make something, then show people and say, ‘Look what I’ve done.’ Maybe I sound a bit old-school, but people get onto computers and it’s, ‘OK, you’ve done that for three hours, what have you got to show for it? You’ve upset a few electrons.’”

And further afield – China’s high-speed railways have finally reached Hong Kong
The train ride between Hong Kong and the mainland city of Guangzhou used to take two hours; on the new Vibrant Express it’s just 48 minutes. Beijing can be reached in nine hours rather than 24.
