The Guardian's media and technology junior reporter Josh Halliday
graduated this year and went straight into a prestigious job on a national. How did he do it? Traditional hard graft but in a multi-media world.
Journalists in the Twittersphere have been aware of @JoshHalliday
his ideas, projects and work, for some time.
He developed the SR2 Hyperlocal blog
, breaking news stories before the local daily and winning awards for it.
In October Josh was part of a panel of young journalists speaking to City University about how blogging helped them get jobs.Read the Media Flair blog about the event here
Josh will be talking about his blogs and how he developed as a journalist by starting from scratch.
If we're lucky we might find out what The Guardian media and tech team think is the next big thing.
Josh has no biscuit preference, so add your suggestions.
