I am Tom Standage, Digital Editor at The Economist. AMA
Greetings, people of Reddit. I'm Tom Standage, digital editor at The Economist. I oversee the Economist.com website and our smartphone and tablet editions, and I'm also editor of the Technology Quarterly. I've also been The Economist's business editor, technology editor and science correspondent. I’m the author of five history books, including “The Victorian Internet” and “A History of the World in 6 Glasses”. In my spare time I enjoy video games, playing the drums and drinking wine (but not all at the same time, obviously). Ask me anything about how The Economist does things, our approach to digital, upcoming trends in media and emerging technologies more broadly.
I will start answering questions at 11am EST/4pm GMT.
Thanks for all your questions. It's been great fun. Bye!
