Personal musings of a young journalist in London

Two weeks of tech writing

leave a comment »

I’ve been working at the Telegraph for a couple of weeks to get my hand back into news writing after a year as community manager at Demotix. I was a bit rusty for the first couple of days but I think I soon got back into the swing of things.

I thought I’d round up the stuff I’ve been doing for future reference, so here’s 10 days’ worth of tech articles. Some of these (ok, especially the video game review) were particularly fun to research and write about.

Microsoft tablet surfaces to mixed reaction on Twitter
