This blog is written by Steve Hill, a lecturer in electronic publishing at Southampton Solent University in the UK and a freelance journalist.
My research interests include the usage of technology in journalism, particularly in relation to user-generated content. I am also an expert in Joomla! (a content management system), e-commerce and the dot-com boom of 1999-2000.
Prior to joining Solent, I worked for Internet Magazine at Emap in London.
I have written on a freelance basis for:
- Sunday Express
- New Statesman
- The Independent
- New Media Age
- V3.co.uk (formally VNUNet)
- Web Designer Magazine
I have carried out numerous media appearances over the past ten years including:
- BBC Radio 1 (Newsbeat)
- BBC Manchester (Andy Peebles Show)
- BBC London (Breakfast Show – Paul Ross)
- BBC Choice (now BBC3 – Liquid News)
- BBC News 24 (NetAid coverage and free ISPs)
- Sky News (Lastminute.com business interview)
- Esquire magazine (eBay tips).
I have also co-authored two best-selling books about eBay in the For Dummies series.
