Nora Young is the host and the creator of Spark, CBC Radio’s national
radio show and podcast about technology and culture. She was the
founding host of the CBC Radio show Definitely not the Opera, where
she often focused on new media and technology. Her work has also
appeared online, on television, and in print.
As a journalist, author, and speaker, Nora explores how new technology shapes the way we understand ourselves and the world around us. Her book, The Virtual Self, on the explosion of data about our behaviours, thoughts, opinions and actions, was published by McClelland and Stewart this spring. This fall, she takes on the role of syndicated technology columnist for CBC Radio afternoon shows.
Nora blogs at norayoung.ca, and does the indie podcast The Sniffer with her friend and colleague, Cathi Bond. On Twitter, she’s @nora3000.
