(views are my own and not of my employer)
Im interested in all things tech and web, I cherish the online lifestyle and want to leave my digital footprint everywhere.
I have a passion for social media and any new apps or platform which are the driving force behind it. I believe social will be the thing which replaces websites, like Email was to the Fax and Fax was to Telex and so on! At the moment social accompanies it.
