For more than twenty years, I have written articles — including buyer’s guides, test center reviews, feature stories, and op-ed pieces — and been a contributing source for many national and local computer industry trade magazines and business periodicals, both print and online editions.

Blogs and e/Newsletters

I’ve had a publishing leadership role with three commercial e/Newsletters (not including private, corporate blogs), reaching back to the 1980s.

NetWare Advisor “The Independent Journal for NetWare Management”

The NetWare Advisor was a monthly technical journal for LAN administrators, systems managers, consultants, applications developers, and power users of Novell NetWare and related third-party products.

It had a global readership, with subscribers on every continent.  Further, its content was licensed, translated to Japanese Kanji, and distributed by a division of Softbank.

I was a co-founder and editor-in-chief.  The publication was sold to Ziff-Davis Publishing in April 1992.

IntegratioNews — “The Quarterly News Publication for Information-Driven Executives”

IntegratioNews covered news and features about how to take advantage of advances in client/server computing technology and how to integrate mission critical systems in a rapidly changing business and technology environment.

I was a co-founder and served as editor-in-chief.  The publication was integrated into the corporate communications group of PerSe Technologies (now McKesson, NYSE: MCK) after its acquisition of BSG.

Appconomist — “Your Guide to the Global App Economy”

Appconomist, coverage focused on comparing and contrasting activity in the world’s two largest economies, the U.S. and China.  We evaluated the trends behind the news.   We talked to the people making the news.  And we used the products that were in the news.

Then, we tried our best to pull all of these experiences together, writing an analysis with an independent voice.

I was the founding editor-in-chief.  The blog and affiliated e-Newsletter continues to operate as a sponsored initiative of Appconomy, Inc.
