Liam Tung

Contributor

Liam Tung is an Australian business technology journalist living a few too many Swedish miles north of Stockholm for his liking. He gained a bachelor's degree in economics and arts (cultural studies) at Sydney's Macquarie University but hacked (without Norse or malicious code for that matter) his way into a career as an enterprise tech, security, and telecommunications journalist with ZDNet Australia. These days Liam is a full-time freelance technology journalist who writes for several Australian publications, including the Sydney Morning Herald online. He's interested primarily in how information technology impacts the way businesses and people communicate, trade, and consume.

Liam Tung has nothing to disclose.
