I wrote this for The Guardian Media & Tech Network on Back to the Future day - October 21st 2015, the day when Marty McFly arrived in the future in the movie Back to the Future II. I looked at technology - which predictions were right, what was missed and what in the movie is likely to happen soon. It was fun to write and got a massive readership.

This is what happened following my Guardian piece on meeting the digital challenges of growing up in public. With some help from friends in the media who had encountered this individual before, I realised that all the accounts starting with me were one person. But I have encountered this sort of thing before. If I had not, and I didn't have media connections, I might well have been rattled. And this was not a provocative story - it was a well-intentioned piece that I wrote as a technology journalist and a parent. It makes me even more concerned that we need to support young people online. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/social-media-bullying-unpleasant-irony-joanna-goodman

Meeting the digital challenges of growing up in public. By me for The Guardian Media & Tech Network. How tech companies and social media platforms are working to give young people the best possible experience online - supporting them if they face issues like online bullying and highlighting the opportunities presented by our connected digital world. This piece was written for Anti-Bullying Week, but its relevance is ongoing.
 - It got a few people going, which further indicated the importance of giving young people means of accessing support if they need it - anonymously if necessary. After all, online bullies don't have to validate their accounts, so why should their targets have to?

My latest piece for The Guardian Media & Tech Network featuring Abe Davis' work at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on how high-speed video software enables sound waves to reveal the properties of physical objects, with important implications for engineering construction and med-tech - as well as space exploration and VFX.

Law Society Gazette Legal IT Roundtable
I helped organise, attended and wrote this report:
http://www.lawgazette.co.uk/people/roundtable-legal-it/5050356.article Cutting-edge technology can help law firms innovate and remain agile. But small firms in particular can struggle to navigate a complex market without specialist advice.
The Gazette’s legal IT roundtable focused on the importance of choosing the right matter management systems, a possible tipping point in cloud computing, and how online tools are helping firms leverage their agility and innovation to compete effectively in a changing market. However, while for some smaller and niche firms IT has levelled the playing field, helping them grow their businesses and extend their market reach, for others it remains a major challenge.
