The Dangers Of Wikipedia


The first time I ever saw an entry about myself on Wikipedia I was pretty chuffed. Someone had taken the time to do some homework and write a couple of paragraphs about me and my achievements.

A year or so later a couple of students were discussing this Wikipedia entry with me in class and asking me about my penchant for Irn Bru. I had no idea what they were talking about until they showed me online the ‘amended’ Wikipedia entry. Someone had gone in and changed all of the relevant information to nonsense facts about me loving Irn Bru and working in an Irn Bru factory!

So, next time you’re asked to do research for an essay or report, please have second thoughts before relying on Wikipedia.

While much of the information you find will be accurate and reliable, you really don’t know who’s writing some of the rubbish that’s posted on there and where they get their facts, so be careful, and double check the facts and information you discover.

Just for the record, I hate Irn Bru!!!

Working With The Orchids

Biography
Ian joined SSR after 20 years’ experience in the music industry. His career started in the nightclubs of Glasgow where he mixed for live acts such as Bronski Beat, John Martyn and BB King. He then built his own recording and video studio in Glasgow, and by the early 90s had recorded with Pet Shop Boys, Texas, Wet Wet Wet, Del Amitri, and The Shamen.

Ian’s own band One Dove released 5 singles (two top 40) and a top 30 album; they appeared on Top of the Pops and toured Europe and America, where they reached the Billboard Top 10 dance charts. He then went on to be a successful producer and remixer, and also recorded albums for Manchester band Lamb.

Ian is still occasionally found in the studio producing and remixing, and in the past 3 years has produced two albums for Glasgow band The Orchids.
