With over 25 years experience as technology jounralist for The Guardian newspaper, we know that the 9th speaker at TEDxOrenda, Jack Schofield (@jackschofield) will have many stories to share with the audience.
In the 1970s Jack edited a wide range of photography magazines and then became editor of the influential computer magazine, Practical Computing. Although Jack left the Guardian in 2010 he still writes the ‘Ask Jack‘ column in which he helps to answer readers’ technical conundrums. He launched the Computer Guardian in 1985 which later became the ‘Online’ supplement in 1994, which was required reading for anyone in the field.
Jack has used many different computers throughout his time as computing expert and was one of the first Mac users in 1983 and as such has an incredible knowledge of the developments that have taken place in this field over the past 25 years or more.
With an eye for the unusual and interesting, Jack‘s Twitter stream is a cornucopia of delights for those who follow him.
We look forward to Jack giving us a potted history of the computer at TEDxOrenda.COMMENTS
