Overview

I've been writing about world-wide technology trends and the companies and culture of Silicon Valley for both a tech-savvy audience and non-technical readers for more than two decades. I currently write news and feature articles for a range of trade and mainstream publications. I've authored a dozen books under my own name and half a dozen for other authors. And I co-scripted the documentary film "Silicon Valley: A 100 Year Renaissance," which aired on PBS.
