And we're starting today with the news that we have a new member of the diginomica family in the shape of Derek du Preez.
Derek is currently one of the team over at ComputerworldUK where he’s been covering a wide variety of topics from cloud computing through CIO interviews and profiles to public sector IT (Universal Credit is a particular favourite of his - NOT!).
I’ve been bumping into Derek at industry events around the world for the past year or so and have been enormously impressed both by the quality of his writing and by his skillful and professional questioning of the various people we’ve encountered on our travels. From the reaction of those in the wider industry who were let in on the secret that he’s joining us, I’m not the only one.
As well as those essential writing and analytic skills, I’ve also come to appreciate Derek’s dry sense of humour, his sensible proportion of cynicism and his ability to more than hold his own in the banter of the tech media and analyst world.
He is, in other words, an ideal diginomica team member.
We’re delighted that Derek is joining us. With Jessica Twentyman already working with us as a contributing editor and Derek taking up his place from 24th February, we’re confident that our core mantra of quality content first, last and always can only be strengthened in 2014.
