Adrian is a technology journalist with over two decades of press experience. Primarily he works as a news analysis writer dedicated to a software application development 'beat'. Adrian has spent much of the last ten years focusing on open source, data analytics and intelligence, cloud computing, mobile devices and data management. He has an extensive background in communications starting in print media, newspapers and also television. He has enough man-hours of cynical world-weary technology experience to separate the spin from the substance, even when the products are shiny and new.
