Freelance Journalist Work for August and September 2010

freelance journalist/press

This is a list of articles / other media work I’ve done as a freelance journalist during August and September 2010. I intend to continue writing freelance articles and do more radio interviews in the future. They will be linked to on a monthly basis.

Product Launches & Events

I was asked to be the blog coordinator and photographer for the Media140 Ozpolitics Conference in Canberra. My article Modern Journalists Technology Toolkit To Cover Live Events was far more popular than I expected, getting linked to on Twitter by journalists around the world as well as being blogged about by Dave Winer and The Poynter Institute!

Reviews & Analysis

Interviewed on ABC Radio National Future Tense about privacy issues related to smartphone GPS apps, location sharing and commercial use of that data (interview will be broadcast in October).

Wrote 2 articles for iTnews: Exclusive: first VividWireless WiMax Sydney speed test results. and Exclusive: TechEd – Microsoft supports women in IT.

Had a whole lot of articles (12 pages in total) published in the print edition of GEARE magazine on newstands in mid-September including a History of Google Android, Roundup Review of 10 Android Phones, Android Location/GPS Application Roundup Review, How to Reduce Electricity Used by Your Gadgets and a Review of the Netcomm NB9WMAXXn ADSL2+ Modem.

I also worked on a lot of articles for the print edition of GEARE magazine which will be published roughly in late November/early December.

Here’s a sneak mini preview of what the articles in GEARE September 2010 issue look like … you’ll have to buy a copy from a Newsagent if you want to read them 🙂

I often have good ideas for articles that don’t fit the audience of my blogs or deserve a bigger audience so I’ve decided to pitch those ideas to various other publications.

These articles will mostly be categorised as Reviews, Product Launches & Events or Public Interest/Consumer protection. Please contact me by email if you have a good idea for an article I could write in 1 of those categories.
