I’m a technology 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.
