About

myphotoI’m Matthew Oliver and talkingtothecan.com is my site. I live in a Wellington suburb with my partner and our two sons and work in the digital cultural sector.

The posts on this site are – inevitably – my own opinions, though invariably they’ll bear at least some relationship to work: culture, the online world, and sometimes the publishing industry.

Part of this is an aide memoir and partly to remind myself that I can write, as long as I do it often enough. And the rest is to confirm in my own mind what I think. I sometimes write about family stories and here are a handful of old projects that I’ve archived.

I’m on Twitter and Instagram as talkingtothecan.
