Libertarian. Enjoys politics, technology, music, food and drink.
Back in November, I remember reading a piece from Milo Yiannopoulos, aka @Nero, about his disillusion with the state of technology journalism. The problems he listed were endless, and they were problems that exist not just in technology journalism but across many other fields as well.
He had an idea, however, that meant he wasn’t just whining from the sidelines but instead wanted to do something about it. The idea, an online magazine – ‘technology’s answer to Vanity Fair’ – was launched today and is called ‘The Kernel.’
I was excited by the project for a number of reasons – (1) I’m quite a nerd anyway and so technology has always been a great interest to me and (2) the concept in journalistic terms was fantastic.
So now, I am their correspondent/columnist on politics. My first piece, “Software to take on a President” looks at the GOP’s need to adapt to social media in the 2012 election. Scoot on over and have a read, and after you have done, check out some of the other content on there as well because it’s all fantastic.
