Matt Warman

Matt Warman covers all aspects of new technology for the Daily Telegraph and, from broadband to mobile phones and from computing to copyright. That means, for instance, explaining the complex debates about net neutrality as well as reviewing new products and assessing whether they really live up to the manufacturer’s hype.

Recently, however, technology’s key themes have in fact centred around its social impact, and on privacy and data transparency having a further impact on areas that would not previously have been considered a part of the science and computing landscape. News stories about Facebook and social networking have shaded into everything from crime to sociology, and Google is shaping the nature of modern work and pleasure. It means that technology is becoming more and more ubiquitous.

Matt has worked for the Telegraph since 1999, over which period he has written about television, the media and technology.
