Mohit Agrawal is Founder and Editor of Telecom Circle, a popular telecoms industry blog and an open networking organisation for communications, media and advertising industry professionals.

He is an alumnus of London Business School, IMT-Ghaziabad and IIT-BHU, Varanasi.

Q.  Tell us a bit about yourself: 

I am a daydreamer. I love to see the big picture, and probably for that reason I am strategist with a large mobile handset company. I also like to share my learning and experiences, and hence have been blogging for the last three years. When I am not working, I like to run around with my five-year-old kid, who is a bundle of joy and energy.

Q. Tell us a little bit about your blog and its interest in mobile technology

My blog is Telecom Circle, and it focuses on the mobile and internet space. I write few articles, but write them after a lot of industry research. The blog is followed by readers who are interested in industry data and trends. I have been blogging for three years, and I got interested in blogging as a hobby soon after an executive development programme at London Business School.  The blog has attracted a decent following with over 20,000 visits per month, and it has managed to generate a small profit as well (thanks to advertising).

Q. What’s hot in mobiles and telecoms this year?

Journalist Q&A with Bertrand Gare, Editor in Chief of L’informaticien

April 10, 2012

Bertrand Gare is Editor in Chief of French ICT publication L’informaticien (or, in English, “Computer Scientist”), a monthly magazine with an accompanying website that is updated daily, along with a free newsletter.

 Q. Tell us about yourself.

I’m Editor in Chief of L’informaticien, a French-language publication for IT professionals. I’m also Associate Director of analyst firm Jemm Research, which specialises in IT infrastructure and consulting for large enterprises. My first job was at IPSOS, where I was in charge of all the sourcing of people for juries on insurance. In 1992, I was asked by a friend with a radio station to be responsible for an Asian radio program; after that, I became a journalist for a press agency focused on Asia and slowly began to specialise in technology.

Q. Tell me about your publication and its interest in IT.

 The print magazine now has over 20,000 readers, including IT professionals, administrators and project chiefs. It is very focused on technology in the field; in fact, there is actually computing code within the magazine from time to time. The website is more news-led than the magazine. Compared with other French IT publications, our magazine’s articles are lengthy, running from three to eight pages. That means we always take the time to provide analysis, not just bald facts. With today’s free news model, information has no value other than that added by the magazine. Read the rest of this entry ?
