Combine that with over ten years of international experience in tech journalism, on- and offline, and John has an extraordinary understanding of both the long-term trends in technology and the cutting edge at any moment.

A dynamic speaker with palpable personal enthusiasm, John speaks to specialist and general audiences about the full range of tech subjects.

Tracing its creation, its mysterious disappearance, and its recovery in 2008, Marie Antoinette's Watch is a testament to the power of technology on our lives and the remarkable feelings that personal electronics can inspires. He believes that modern technology tells equally fascinating stories.

John Biggs Speaking Topics

  • Hardware Startups

    The Next Industrial Revolution I’ve been following hardware startups for nearly a decade and, with the rise of new manufacturing methods and funding sources, the space has exploded. I can share what I learned visiting the little guys (Makerbot, Adafruit Industries) and the big guys (Foxconn, Apple).

  • Computer Security From A Human Perspective

    Because I come into contact with a number of end users of security, I’m able to make assessments that go beyond wonky security talks.

  • The Future

    As a technophile, I come into contact with multiple new technologies. This talk is usually best for an audience looking for the next big thing. I help them find it.

  • Cryptocurrency and Blockchain

    This nascent field is quite compelling and one of the hottest new technologies in many sectors. I have access to interesting data and information regarding the space thanks to my role as CEO at a blockchain startup.
