Profile of Ray Le Maistre

Editor-in-chief

Don't be fooled by the weird cod-French surname: Ray's as British as corned beef and bad teeth, despite affecting a sheen of Continental sophistication by his constant references to fancy-dan "proper" coffee. He's even trained as a barista, for god's sake.

Ray joined Light Reading in 2002 shortly after being shown the door and a very long corridor at Total Telecom. He has been in technology journalism since 1988, having worked at Computer Weekly, Communications WeekInternational and Communications International.

A slave to fashion, Ray is never seen in the same outfit twice. When not trawling the malls of Epsom, U.K., for the latest in skinny jeans and what-have-you, Ray is often to be heard banging on about SPIT (Service Provider Information Technology), which is also known as TATRTCA (The Acronym That Refuses To Catch On).

As a soccer nut, Ray likes nothing better than cheap jibes about Manchester United. If you bump into him at a trade show, be sure to make some remark about prawn-sandwich-eating supporters or similar he'll love it!
