Simon Bisson, Technology Journalist
Simon has been a freelance technology writer since the ’90s, covering everything from startups and consumer gadgets to small-business technology, enterprise architectures, developer tools, and application development. In what he sometimes describes as “career as verb rather than noun,” he moved into IT from academic, military, and telecoms research (sometimes all three at once), running the technology side of one of the UK’s first national ISPs and working as a consultant on many early ecommerce sites, with a natural progression into journalism to explain to other people how to do similar things. He still writes code (currently aircraft tracking for Raspberry Pi).
