About The Cold War Daily

Historians agree that the Cold War ended in the early 1990s. There is less agreement on what kind of period we are slipping into now, 25 years later. But I note with a smile the tendency of Chinese, American and Russian leaders, in a pinch, to accuse each other of harboring a “Cold War mentality.” It inspired the name for this blog.

I work as a foreign news editor at Fairfax Media in Australia, publisher of the The Age and Sydney Morning Herald.

All opinions and analysis contained in this blog are my own and are not those of Fairfax.

The beauty of looking at international events through the eyes of a journalist (rather than a policy person, say), is that there is no need to cram events into a single unifying theory, no matter how elegant.

One recurring theme for me, though, is the powers, technology or ideas that will shape the future. Favorite topics include technology, space, cyber, internet, culture, ideology, politics, art, terror, and utopia.
