Freelance Journalist Work for August September 2011

freelance journalist/press

This is a list of articles / other media work I’ve done as a freelance journalist during August and September 2011. I intend to continue writing freelance articles and do more radio interviews in the future. They will be linked to on a regular basis.

Interviews, Talks and Events

I got to ride the Nozomi Shinkansen (bullet train) during a brief visit to Japan touring the Panasonic Toughbook testing facilities for Technology Spectator.

I travelled through the Eastern Cape province of South Africa with a group of journalists from around the world in order to write a Safari article for GEARE magazine. I took lots of photos, the highlights are shown below:

I took a video and photo of a Makerbot (3D printer) during research for a GEARE magazine story. The video was featured in a Gizmodo Australia story on 29th August 2011.

Sky TV Business News interviewed me about Measuring Social Media. The story aired on TV 5th September 2011.

I was interviewed and quoted by ABC Radio National Background Briefing for a program about Astroturfing: Don’t trust the web on 18th September 2011.

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. Please contact me by email if you have a good idea for an article I could write in 1 of those categories.
