The quick roundup: technology journalist, one-time IT strategy consultant, SF reader (and occasional writer), traveller, book and art collector. Oh, and geek.

Born on the Channel Island of Jersey, I now live in South West London, with Mary, two cats and various robotic assistants.

Online Presences From The Same Keyboard

I’ve been running a personal blog using Livejournal for some years now, and it’s where I post pictures, and other writings that can’t be readily categorised.

Of course I also have a Flickr photostream…

If you want to find out what I’m reading, I have a LibraryThing account. You can see my catalogue here.

Google will probably find other sites and blogs, but they’re mainly test sites for magazine articles I’ll have been working on.

If you use Twitter, then you’ll find me there as @sbisson.

I’m also to be found on Google+, Facebook and LinkedIn.
