The Kernel publishes high-quality writing about the way technology is rapidly changing our lives. We commission long-form reviews, comment pieces and essays from the best writers and thinkers we can find. Our focus is on the people, places, events and ideas that are refashioning the world around us.
We embrace controversy and unpopular opinions provided they are thought-provoking and well-argued. We are enthusiastic about software and the internet but we realise there’s a lot more to technology than just web and mobile.
Our writing is authoritative, sharply argued, thoroughly edited and often amusing. We love discovering and nurturing new writers and sharing intelligent views and inside information gleaned from our deep and excellent connections in the industry.
- Comment: the backbone of the magazine is a stream of thoughtfully argued, well-written pieces about technology and its effects on the world around us
- Features and Interviews: are you a budding interviewer who can get to, and extract something fresh and interesting from, fascinating and accomplished people?
- Essays and reports: once a month, we publish a long-form report of 3,000 words or more on one aspect of technological change
- The Scene: social diaries, listings, reviews and intel about the European technology scene
