Max Cooter



About Me

I'm a freelance writer who has covered IT for a number of publications. I was launch editor for two award-winning publications: Techworld and Cloud Pro but have also worked on several other publications aimed at IT professionals (as well as writing for a theatre website in my spare time). I've also co-written a book on Linux.

 I've spent 32 years as a journalist - although I've had a couple of sorties into the PR dark side in that time. I also ran my own publishing business, Positive Productions, in the late 80s. As well as my editing and writing skills, I have chaired and spoken at several conferences in the field of IT and have been an industry expert on several broadcast media outlets.

 Specialties: Online publishing; writing; subbing, commissioning, community management
