The world is flat. We’re living in a wired global village, where a TV show that airs on one side of the planet can be seen anywhere else on Earth, virtually instantly, in real time...

Christiane Amanpour, CNN International’s longtime chief foreign correspondent, has long been based in London, so she has never been as familiar to news viewers on these shores as she is in Europe, despite her profile overseas...

First, a confession. I’m an avid, but not obsessive, user of both Facebook and Twitter. I see the good in social media, and the bad, too. I’m not naive...

Picture if you will, a corporation that makes a product people not just want but need, a corporation that puts all its efforts into boosting this quarter’s profit statements, with little thought for what comes afterward...

Alex Strachan

Alex Strachan has written extensively about television since 1995. He was the staff television critic for The Vancouver Sun from June 1995 to 2003. Prior to that, he was a general-assignment reporter and sportswriter at the Sun, which he originally joined in 1979. He became the national TV critic for Canada’s Postmedia News chain, or Canwest Global Communications as it was then called, in September 2003. He wrote for the chain from 2003-15, during which time his stories appeared regularly on Canada.com and in such daily papers as the National Post, Vancouver Sun, Montreal Gazette, Ottawa Citizen and Calgary Herald. In recent years, his writing has focused more on media analysis and industry trends than celebrity profiles and background features, but he still finds time to watch The Voice and The Amazing Race, not to mention guilty pleasures like Banshee and Amazon Hotel. Alex's personal website focuses on his concern for the world around us through his stunning photographs from his world travels. In addition, check out Alex's blog on his site which he tries to update every two days or so. You can also follow Alex @astrachanideas
