Andrew Yates (Senior Producer): I've been online ever since my parents bought me a Commodore VIC-20 and modem back in elementary school. Since then the worlds of storytelling, online communities and news have become my passion. When I'm not online I'm a husband, a father of two beautiful girls and a guitar player.  Find me on Twitter @yatesey.


john-bowman-community.jpgJohn Bowman (Acting Producer): I've been with CBCNews.ca for more than 10 years, so I've done a lot of different jobs on the website.  I started blogging for the CBC with the Blog Report on Canada Votes 2006. I'm into science and technology news, and new and nerdy ways to tell stories, like databases, charts and maps. I'm on Twitter @johnbowman.


hs2_ONeil.jpgLauren O'Neil (Associate Producer): A longtime Internet culture geek and creative Jill of all trades, my passions for writing, technology and web video are what lead me into the world of online journalism. I love nothing more than talking to Canadians and telling their stories. I am rarely spotted without an iPhone in hand Tweeting photos of everything that strikes my fancy: @laurenonizzle."
