Andreas Ekström, (born 1975) from Fjärås, Kungsbacka, Sweden, is a Swedish journalist at Sydsvenska Dagbladet (and at Expressen before that), but also a writer and blogger. Mr. Ekström has B.Sc. in Comparative Literature from Lund University. He is a columnist in the trade-magazine Journalist. During his time at the newspaper Dagens Nyheter in 2005, he became the first in its history of using the blog medium. He was also a driving force for Sydsvenskan's initiative later that year to start its first blog. Mr. Ekström blogged regularly in-house under the pseudonym "Hemliga pappan" between August 2005 and May 2008 and has had a blog in his own name with a focus on journalism, media and copyright issues in various forms since 2003.
He has published a number of books, among others, Hemliga pappan and Jag kräver att ni läser vaket och långsamt.
