Journalism - Techworld

Techworld, found at, is an IDG online publication for IT professionals, mostly networking experts. It's run by two esteemed IT journos - Max Cooter and John Dunn.

It's a new site, only launching in May 2003,and Max asked me if I would do six stories a week for him to get traffic and people coming to the site. If you are an IT pro, it's a cracking site and this seems to have been reflected in the stats (which I'm reliably informed are higher than expected) and the fact it won New Business Launch at the Online Publishers Awards in 2003.

Anyway, here are the stories that I've written for Techworld, split into years, most recent, features and stories I'm most pleased with:
