Matt Warman

Matt Warman covers all aspects of new technology for the Daily Telegraph and Telegraph.co.uk, from broadband to mobile phones and from computing to copyright. That means, for instance, explaining the complex debates about net neutrality as well as reviewing new products and assessing whether they really live up to the manufacturer’s hype.

Recently, however, technology’s key themes have in fact centred around its social impact, and on privacy and data transparency having a further impact on areas that would not previously have been considered a part of the science and computing landscape. News stories about Facebook and social networking have shaded into everything from crime to sociology, and Google is shaping the nature of modern work and pleasure. It means that technology is becoming more and more ubiquitous.

Matt has worked for the Telegraph since 1999, over which period he has written about television, the media and technology.

"The energy, verve and enthusiasm at The Battle of Ideas filled me with hope. Coming from India where so many people still lack the basic necessities that make human life worth living, it was heartening to see basic issues of equity and justice debated with such passion and fervour."
George Thomas, orthopaedic surgeon; editor, Indian Journal of Medical Ethics
