Daniel New – Editor

Daniel is a marketing man and the founder of Thumbsticks. When he’s not working to keep the site in optimum condition you’ll often find him lurking at events, drinking tepid tea from a cardboard cup, and bringing you important industry news and views. Back at base he drinks copious amounts of hot tea from a mug, which is of course preferable, and performs his best work with video game and movie soundtracks playing in the background as heroic inspiration.

Tom Baines – Editor

Tom is an itinerant freelance technology writer who found a home as an editor with Thumbsticks. If Daniel is the optimistic ideas man behind Thumbsticks then Tom is the perfect foil (read: buzz-kill) and spends much of his time wrangling writers (read: generally being a jerk and complaining about word counts). Tom especially loves coffee, role-playing games, and anything he can play co-operatively with his wife – they make an awesome co-op team.
