A new Q

RT@mocost MI5 seeks a part-time Q:

BBC News has learned that the appointment is intended to assist MI5 in harnessing developments in science and technology that will help the service combat terrorism and support field officers in counter-intelligence activities.
BBC asked Professor John Beddington, the top scientific adviser in the UK government, if the job involved designing cool gadgets.

"I think it's unlikely that the person will be required to develop a weapons system for the latest Aston Martin," was his reply.
