Adam Oxford

I am a journalist with over 20 years experience of writing about technology, the tech industry and ICT4D. I began my career in magazines at Future Publishing, writing about videogames, digital photography and the internet revolution, working on several titles before editing PC Format. I have been a freelance writer since 2006, and my work has appeared in The Guardian, Mail&Guardian, Wired, Stuff, PC Gamer, The Ecologist, TechRadar, The Sunday Times, The Times, The Journalist, Linux Format and more. 

In 2009 I was a finalist for The Guardian's International Development Journalist of the Year award. 

I currently live in Johannesburg, South Africa. In 2013, I launched, a technology news site, which has grown to the second largest site of its kind in the country. 

I have particular interests in technology for social and civic development, open data and data-driven storytelling, and am the Johannesburg co-coordinator for Hacks/Hackers. I also work on independent report production and have general familiarity with Excel, R and other statistical packages. 

As well as writing and online/print production, I am also able to supply photography and script-writing if required.



This is a list of articles published for I am the founder and publisher of this site, which is the second largest tech-related news site in South Africa.


A detailed look at the computing infrastructure necessary for the Large Hadron Collider at Cern. Written for Linux Format.
