Launch: The Observer will introduce tech supplement next month

The title said the supplement would bring together news and views on science and technology and build on existing tech coverage. As well as a free inclusion in The Observer, the supplement will feature in the Guardian and Observer iPad edition and be available online and on mobile.

John Mulholland, editor of The Observer and Tech Monthly, said: “From fashion to finance and from media to medicine, science and technology is changing all our professional and personal lives. That's why it is such an incredibly rich area for journalism to explore and we are thrilled to be developing this further.”

The supplement will feature a gaming column by playwright Lucy Prebble; a ‘geek calendar’ listing upcoming tech talks, launches and hackathons; a tech column by the Guardian’s head of technology Jemima Kiss; and a ‘bright sparks’ feature, focusing on new ideas from teenagers.
