Writer, tech journo, accidental pigeon killer
Introduction
I'm Alex. I'm networking editor at Computer Weekly, part of the TechTarget network.

I try to write books as well. But I promise I won't ask you to read my manuscript.

I cycle a lot, drink whisky and cook things.

It's true about the pigeon.

I am married to Lowell.

The storage world has a mixture of emerging technology and a few old favourites, with some users hanging on to their tape solutions for years while others rush towards the cloud.
