Hello! I'm Anna

Me intro picture .jpg

Oh HAI everyone! I’m Anna, the new editor of Shiny Shiny, tentatively taking the place of the lovely Zara and stepping into a long line of distinguished, witty and knowledgeable ShinyShiny editors.

Since I’m also stepping into the radar zone of ShinyShiny’s distinguished, witty and knowledgeable readers, I thought I’d introduce myself and say that I’d really like to hear about the things that you want to see on the site.

Me? oh, I’m just an internet-addict who likes playing around with shiny things, whether they glitter, vibrate or just do complicated things with data, I used to be geeky in a booky way, now I’m geeky in a soft techie way. When I first got my iPhone I wanted to get it embedded in my arm because I liked it so much and didn’t want to be separated from it, but, with hindsight, it’s fortunate that that wasn’t medically possible.

But we all know no gadget is perfect and I will be casting an objective, glinty eye over the rich offerings of the tech world to you, the ShinyShiny reader.

Yet the future holds changes too… follow after the jump
