I've been covering technology and its ramifications for two decades. My work spans editing and writing for Wired, MIT Technology Review, Forbes, and Fast Company. I've also provided strategic communications guidance to leading companies including AMD, Cisco, Dell, Intel, Microsoft, and Sprint.
As an editor at Wired for nearly ten years, I tried to illuminate technology’s impact on business, culture, economics, science, and politics. I covered Internet titans such as Amazon, Craigslist, and Google and managed the annual “Wired 40” list of innovative companies. During my tenure, Wired won three National Magazine Awards as well as Ad Age’s highest accolade, “Magazine of the Decade” (2000-2010).
Prior to Wired, I covered emerging digital media as editor-in-chief of technology journals for the creative community. At 3D Magazine, I covered graphics hardware, software, and techniques for artists, videographers, and filmmakers. At InterActivity, I served the community of web and DVD developers with in-depth reviews and tutorials.
Early in my career, I was involved in music production and audio for video. My compositions have been issued by Windham Hill Records and appeared in broadcast ads for Comedy Central, Brut, and Nickelodeon. My credits as a recording engineer include Full Force, Kurtis Blow, Glenn Branca and a number of Hatian groups whose names I've forgotten. (I tried hard to sit in on sessions for Bob Dylan's Infidels album but the engineer always asked me to set up the drums and then shooed me away.) I'm the author of The Musician’s Home Recording Guide (Backbeat Books).
