This blog is about big tin: back office IT infrastructure used by enterprises and telecoms providers to run their businesses.
It covers areas such as networking in all its forms, servers, mobile, operating systems, data centres, virtualisation and more. I started this blog because there’s nothing else quite like it…
Who am I? I’m a technology journalist and analyst, and have been for over 20 years, mostly covering communications issues and technologies. Career highlights include editor-in-chief PC Magazine UK, technology strategist analyst at analyst firm Datamonitor, several years freelancing and a year as editorial director at NetEvents TV producing business-relating video for the web. I also worked as a motoring journalist for about three years, editing the news for PistonHeads, a sports-car enthusiasts’ site.
There’s more about me (including commercial information) here, and my photography lives here. What else? I live in Lewes, a town near Brighton, UK, that has a real sense of itself – I’m not convinced the wiki entry does it justice so maybe I’ll do something about that one day.
I’d be delighted to hear your comments on the blog.
