Hello. I'm Nate Lanxon. I'm a journalist. I was born on 15 December, 1984 in Sheffield, England.
I'm the Editor of Wired.co.uk — a website about technology, science, business and culture, from Conde Nast (publisher of Vogue, GQ, Glamour, Vanity Fair). I am also Editor-in-Chief of Ars Technica UK, due to launch in Britain during Spring 2015.
From February 2015 I will depart the above roles to become Senior Editor at Bloomberg.
Before Wired I was a Senior Editor at CBS-owned CNET (my third role at that publication). Before that, I founded a tech website called Tech’s Message.
I am primarily a consumer technology journalist, 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 with talks and workshops.
Professionally, I have written for or spoken on many media outlets, including Ars Technica, BBC television and radio frequently, Channel 4, CNN, The Sunday Times, The Metro, Sky News and of course Wired in print and online. I appeared as an expert judge on one episode of the 2011 series of the BBC’s programme The Apprentice.
While not my chief focus in any role, I am experienced with the commercial aspects of modern internet publishing, product development, business strategies and challenging editorial direction.
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.

My brother is Andrew Lanxon Hoyle, senior writer at CNET.
