My name is Charles Mabbett and I’m in love with the digital world. I am also a news junkie and social media geek. I used to be a professional journalist. Now I’m a communications adviser and I also write for the sake of it, posting it here on my blog and for the great guys at Social Media NZ. My other interests include Post Punk, the natural world and observing the arrival of the Asian Century. I am hoping that learning Chinese will help me in a future that will have Chinese characteristics. Thanks for reading!

Journalist at Radio New Zealand. I'm in love with the digital world. News junkie, Asia watcher and armchair footballer are some of the nouns that describe me.
