David O’Mahony is a freelance sub-editor with a daily newspaper called the Irish Examiner. He gets very excited about anything related to gadgets, world news and business, which means he is a very, very lonely young man. He lays out business and news pages and occasionally fills in as foreign news editor, which means he is a workaholic with no social life.
He started this blog because he can’t stop reading the news wires and missed writing.
He has reported for newspapers such as the Evening Echo and Waterford News & Star, and in November-December 2005/January 2006 left the Examiner’s subbing desk to transcribe court copy in the trial and sentencing of Wayne O’Donoghue. Some of that work can be found here.
He loves science fiction and is interested in everything from music to medieval history to architecture. He finds his philosophy in very strange places.
David writes in the third person because he is a very private person and has the strange notion this technique creates a comfortable distance. He can be contacted at dave AT tinyplanetblog DOT com.
