New to the Pop crew: Stuart Memo
We looked far and wide for new writers, and were thrilled by the number of qualified, truly quirky people who responded to our invitation to apply. Posts from our new writers have been appearing here for a few weeks now, and it's time to let you know who they are, one at a time.
From Glasgow, we have Stuart Memo writing about devices, games and accessories. When not writing for Popgadget, Stuart plays bass for the band Data Panik, and works as a software engineer. Unwittingly, he has also become our tech forensics expert and troubleshooter (proving that no good deed goes unpunished).
Data Panik is playing tonight at Bar Bloc in Glasgow (Club Olum) -- admission is free. You can also catch them at The Ghetto in London on July 3rd at a Rockstarz show (a "polysexual mash-up of new great bands and top indie dj's"), and at The Garage in London on July 4th (with Polysics). Additional summer performance dates are up on their website.
Though we wanted Stuart on our team partly because his sample posts were so hilarious, he claims to have no sense of humor in real life.
