Bob Emmerson is an English national living in the Netherlands. He has a degree in electronic engineering and mathematics from London University and now works as an all-round freelance writer, focusing on Information and Communications Technology. He has written articles and columns for a number of international publications, most of which are (sadly) no longer with us, e.g. Byte: an IT bible.
In former lives Bob was a designer of digital control systems, a journalist, and then a copywriter. For a number of years he ran his own advertising/pr agency in Brussels: clients included ITT Europe, Philips, Intel and The Financial Times. In addition to creating numerous sales brochures/leaflets/presentations and writing press releases and press kits, he wrote three market reports for the Financial Times and co-authored two books on IP Communications.
