After a decade writing news and features for BBC World Online, I have decided to bring my pieces together in one place. Most were posted on Twitter and Tumblr but those that stretch back into the pre-social media era were feeling lonely. Hopefully the stories here keep resonating, in Europe (my stamping ground) and beyond.
Journalism students with an interest in how website reporting is evolving may find my work interesting as I was the first member of our team to use our new digital reporting kit in anger (March 2014 in Crimea). Oh yes, I wear the technical flaws with pride.
That’s me in the mafia shirt above, by the way, interviewing Podemos activists in Spain last May Day.
