About

You are reading the blog of Alfred Siew, a writer, consultant and avid techie in Singapore.

Previously the Technology Correspondent for The Straits Times newspaper, I have spent over a decade covering the beat in Singapore since 1998. Among my notable stories: the development of the nation’s next-gen broadband network as well as the rising costs of exclusive pay-TV content due to unhealthy competition.

In 2007, I was part of the Hawaii-based East-West Center’s Jefferson Fellowship, which travelled to the United States, China and India to explore the issue of outsourcing and innovation off-shoring.

A lover of new PCs and cellphones, I still contribute to Digital Life, the weekly magazine of The Straits Times . I also run a popular technology blog – Techgoondu – with journalist and ex-journalist pals.

What keeps me busy these days is a course on News Reporting and Editing that I am teaching at the National University of Singapore’s Communications and New Media programme.

As a writer and consultant, I also write, edit and manage the production of corporate literature, including corporate blogs and annual reports. Clients include multinationals, government agencies and NGOs.

However, I do not endorse any products or companies.
