Who’s behind the Buzz? The ChannelBuzz.ca team includes dedicated staff and a wide variety of seasoned technology journalists, analysts and solution providers. Here’s who’s on the team:
Robert Dutt – Head Blogger
Robert has been covering the Canadian IT channel since he graduated from college in December 1997. Coming out of J-school in the height of the expansion of the Internet with a basic knowledge of HTML, Robert joined CRN Canada as its online editor and grew to love the community. Over the years, his role changed (CRN Canada became eChannelLine) and he changed roles (rejoining CRN Canada under different ownership as editor in 2007) but his focus on the channel and on online vehicles remained steady.
Since the beginning of his career, Robert has been a leader in developing electronic news and information platforms for the Canadian audience, leading the development of what was to become eChannelLine and then later overseeing a redesign and new strategy for CRN Canada’s online properties.
In October 2010, Robert launched ChannelBuzz.ca, the first news and analysis blog platform for the Canadian IT channel community with the stated goal of cutting through the noise for Canadian VARs and MSPs.
In the rare moments he’s not blogging about the Canadian channel, Robert enjoys good friends, good food, and good mixed martial arts. (Actually, even bad mixed martial arts will do in a pinch. To him, it’s kinda like the old saying about a bad day of golf…)
