Welcome to my blog.
I’m a journalist sometimes. It’s a hard habit to break.
I’ve been a journalist for more than 20 years now, from printing images with light on paper to be set for the newspapers to messing with codecs for video news clips on mobile devices.
I’ve lead on social news projects, advised on news aggregators and tested too many wonderful bits of kit and technology related to news to name here. I’ve trained people to work in reporting using social media, user generated content (UGC) and fresh tools for reporting on location using online software.
I’ve spoken about creativity and openness at SXSW for the Digital Planet – now Click Radio show on BBC World Service. I’ve delivered a lecture at the Centre for Internet and Society in Bengaluru. I once delivered a talk for Ignite London – about cake and digital creativity.
