Hello. I'm Nate Lanxon. I'm a journalist, editor, podcaster, media producer, and occasional public speaker.
Professionally I am an editor and tech correspondent for Bloomberg, based in London. For over a decade, I have particularly focussed on the consumer technology sector, and the trends shaping the global industry. I contribute to most Bloomberg editorial platforms, including the Bloomberg Terminal, Bloomberg.com, Bloomberg Businessweek, Bloomberg Television and Radio, and at our live conferences.
Previous to this I was Senior Editor at Bloomberg Media and was head of digital editorial for Bloomberg.com in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Before that I was the Editor of WIRED.co.uk — a website about technology, science, business and culture, from Conde Nast (publisher of Vogue, GQ, Glamour, Vanity Fair). Shortly before departing Conde Nast, I was concurrently Editor-in-Chief of Ars Technica UK, which was due to launch in Britain during Spring 2015 while I held that role.
Before WIRED I was a Senior Editor at CBS-owned CNET (my third role at that publication) and occasionally contributed to GameSpot. Before that, I founded a small tech and gaming website called Tech’s Message, which helped kickstart my professional career as a journalist and is now the name of my weekly technology podcast hosted at natelanxon.com.
I am primarily a consumer technology writer, covering the business of the modern technology industry and its companies, as well as the products and people that drive it forwards. I am also a video games expert with a particular focus on mainstream games culture and technologies. I produce, host and promote successful podcasts and frequently evangelise the medium.
I have written for or spoken on many media outlets, recently including Ars Technica, BBC television and radio, ITV's This Morning, Bloomberg, Sky News and WIRED.com. I appeared as an expert judge on one episode of the BBC’s programme The Apprentice.
I have also provided editorial advice for features in numerous other publications as well as technology consultancy to commercial research firms and keynote speeches for industry events. I was shortlisted for the 2010 and 2011 British Society of Magazine Editors’ online Editor of The Year award, amongst other shortlist placements from related awards bodies.

I was born on 15 December, 1984 in Sheffield, England. My brother is Andrew Lanxon Hoyle, Senior Writer at CNET.
