The Guardian releases new 'flagship' technology newsletter

Penned by its UK technology editor Alex Hern every Wednesday, TechScape readers will be kept updated with the tech stories that matter.

The first edition was published on 13 July, covering a controversial new artificial intelligence tool showing a future of work that could be a mask for intellectual property theft.

That's just a flavour of what to expect from TechScape, where Hern will share weird and wonderful tales from the world of technology with his readers.

In the past, these have been everything from creating his own cryptocurrency and working from a virtual-reality office, to being on the frontline of major stories such as Cambridge Analytica and the WannaCry ransomware attack.

With the launch of his new newsletter, Herd remarked: "I couldn't be more excited to be writing The Guardian's flagship technology newsletter.

"I'm looking forward to talking with The Guardian readers about everything and anything we find interesting, from the ways AI is changing the world to the ways mesh networking is changing our homes."
