Katy who?

Katy Anderson! I'm a writer and editor whose favourite things to nerd out on are the future of the internet and how technology is changing the way we communicate and consume information.

When I'm not fighting my way out of a blackhole of opening and closing tabs, I can be found at the yoga studio (a transparent attempt at balance), sipping on a hot mocha or a cold beer or working through a never-ending list of things to watch.

As a journalist, I'm interested in innovative storytelling and making information accessible, engaging and entertaining.

I live in Calgary where I work as an online reporter/editor at the CBC. Before that I worked as the Calgary editor for OpenFile, a now-defunct news startup that bridged the gap between citizen and traditional journalism.

I also spent a few years at Postmedia, working at the Calgary Herald and then the Vancouver Sun, where I pounded the pavement as a reporter, scoured the internet while typing really, really fast as an online producer and was pedantic and (sometimes) punny on the copy editing desk.

My biggest joys in life are terrible jokes, neat facts and cute cats.
