Karen Friar is news editor for ZDNet in the UK, based in London. She has been in journalism since the last century, starting out in film journalism in San Francisco, before making the switch to tech coverage at ZDNet.com. Next came a move to CNET News.com, where she looked after west coast coverage of business technology, specialising in security. After 14 years in California and a marriage-related change of name (from Karen Said), she returned to her homeland to work at ZDNet UK and so that her husband could deepen his knowledge of the offside rule.Follow me on Twitter at @Karen_Friar
