Event Details

Rory Cellan-Jones, BBC Technology Correspondent

Rory Cellan-Jones has been a reporter for the BBC for a quarter of a century, covering business and technology stories for much of that time. He joined the BBC as a researcher on Look North in 1981, moving to London to work as a producer in the TV Newsroom and on Newsnight. At the beginning of 2007 he was appointed Technology Correspondent with a brief to expand the BBC’s coverage of the impact of the internet on business and society.

Rory has been watching the technology scene like a hawk for the last 15 years.

From the dotcom bubble of the late 1990s to the rise of Google and Facebook, from the Psion organiser to the iPad, he's covered all the big gadget and business stories, and interviewed just about everyone who's played a part in the story of the web.

Dot.Rory, his previous blog, was named among the Top 100 blogs by the Sunday Times.

He aims to look at the impact of the internet and digital technology on our lives and businesses. Rory has been described as "the non-geek's geek", and freely admits that he came late to technology - but he aims to explain its significance to anyone with an interest in the subject.

BIOGRAPHY:

Rory Cellan-Jones has been a reporter for the BBC for a quarter of a century, covering business and technology stories for much of that time.

He joined the BBC as a researcher on Look North in 1981, moving to London to work as a producer in the TV Newsroom and on Newsnight.

His on-screen career began as reporter for Wales Today in Cardiff, from where he moved to London as a reporter on Breakfast Time. He quickly transferred to business coverage, working across the BBC’s output from the Money Programme to Newsnight, from the Today programme to the Ten O’ Clock News. The stories he has covered range from Black Wednesday and the Maxwell trial to the dot com bubble and the rise of Google.

In 2000 he was briefly the BBC’s Internet Correspondent before returning to his post as Business and Industry Correspondent after the dot com bubble burst. At the beginning of 2007 he was appointed Technology Correspondent with a brief to expand the BBC’s coverage of the impact of the internet on business and society.

He now covers technology for television, radio and the BBC website. He also blogs regularly on “dot rory”, the BBC’s popular technology blog and is a prolific tweeter – you can follow him at @ruskin147 or @BBCRoryCJ . In 2012, readers of T3 magazine voted him ‘Gadget Personality of The Year’. And whenever there is a new gadget, app or useful website to try, Rory is likely to be experimenting with ways of using the new tools in his journalism.

In 2014, he began presenting a new weekly programme Tech Tent on the BBC World Service. He is also the author of “Dot.Bomb “, a critically acclaimed account of Britain’s dot com bubble.
