A friend emailed me this same article. Unfortunately, right next to it on the website is a response written by one of the paper's technology correspondents, "Why no-one is allergic to wifi".

His piece, and especially some of the vitriolic ridicule heaped on the EHS community (and the very notion that wifi is anything but wonderful) doesn't help the cause.

It's going to be such a struggle to get recognition.

Apparently it was a hoax, a PR stunt

Until the DJ and/or his press agent admit to any kind of PR stunt, then it's just their word that it's all a hoax of course.

It isn't a PR stunt at all, having corresponded with the DJ personally about his current goals achieving more recognition for the condition.

topazg,

I've written Mr. Miller too and he's genuine. By the way, he did a BBC interview. Mp3 is archived here.

Yes, I thought he came across really well. It must be very hard being an ES DJ I would have thought!
