UPDATE ON UPDATE: To make even more clear I’m not simply reposting and attempting to claim all the glory, you’ll have to go to the Pocket-lint site for the full list.UPDATE: Just so everyone is clear, this is NOT my list, I’m simply reposting – this is the list from the original Pocket-lint post here. As Richard (see comments below) pointed out, there was no link to the original article – my apologies – it’s there now.

I must have been number 101 on the list. A former Pocket Lint contributor, Contributing Editor of PC Pro magazine, contributor to Microsoft.com, Microscope, IT Pro, Infosecurity, iTWire and DaniWeb amongst others. Two time Information Security Journalist of the Year, a former Technology Journalist of the Year and, before I forget as well, I have been @happygeek on Twitter since January 2007.
Any particular reason for copying and pasting someone else’s entire article into your blog with no link?
Richard – thanks for the comment. The particular reason? I think it is commonly known as an honest mistake. I’ve recently started using Posterous – which auto posts items to my blog. Sometimes the formatting on the original Posterous post can go awry – in my zeal to cut the extraneous material at the bottom of the post, I obviously removed the original link (you’ll see that the original post link is included in these Posterours re-posts). I have now updated the post here to include the original link. Thanks for the pointing out my error. I certainly have no intention of passing off someone else’s material as my own.
Fair enough, can’t argue with technical hitches, thanks for fixing it. That said, I would argue that reposting the entire article isn’t good form: your thoughts on the list followed by a link would be better netiquette. As an online journalist myself, proper linking back is a real hot button issue for myself and my colleagues.
