Brown and Obama
Despite the woes of her husband, Sarah Brown's rise to prominence on Twitter (where she's now more followed than the beloved Stephen Fry) has been spectacular. Sarah has been a good friend to if:book, as she has been to Booktrust and many other charities and causes, showing considerable interest in if:book's mission and activities. A few weeks ago I sent her a message via Twitter asking if she would like to hear more about what we're doing for digital Britain. She replied, personally and positively, within five minutes.
