I’m a technology journalist, writer and consultant, based in Singapore.



I consult for companies large and small trying to make sense of technologies and how best to position themselves. I largely do this by creating bespoke content that hits a high ethical bar. I was chief technology correspondent in Asia for Thomson Reuters. Before that I was a technology columnist for The Wall Street Journal and the Far Eastern Economic Review (the Loose Wire column). I was a correspondent for Reuters in the 1980s and 90s. I have an irregular slot on the BBC’s World Service Business Daily show. The website of my company, Cleftstick, is here

  1. A search about myinfo took me to “An Outliner that tags”, your article from March 16, 2006.

    A search in your webpage by “Outliner” shows no results.

    But I can read your article without any problem here: http://www.loosewireblog.com/2006/03/an_outliner_tha.html

    Therefore your search engine is not indexing at least that blog entry.

    (just for you to know).

    Nice articles, a long time follower in my RSS reader.

  2. Excellent piece on blackeberry on Reuters. One other point sending people away from BB is its blackouts. Also the botched launch on Android and IOS is probably the nail on its coffin.

  4. Hi,

    Just wondering if you accept advertisements on loosewireblog.com? If so, then I’d love the chance to buy some space from you.

    Let me know if you’d like to hear more and we can arrange a deal.
