A former copy editor for IDG’s InfoWorld, Lawson covered networking for that publication from 1996 until 1999, when he joined the News Service as its Hong Kong correspondent. There, he covered general IT issues in Hong Kong and mainland China, including mobile services and the territory’s brief dot-com craze.

Outside the office, Lawson is an avid photographer and U.S. history buff and has studied video production and marketing strategy.
