About Me

Tech journalist since the dark ages. Windows Secrets, LangaList newsletter, Windows Magazine (NetGuide, Home PC), Byte, Popular Computing, yadda yadda yadda. Google me, if it matters.

This feed is mostly personal interest; it's NOT my professional writing. There's tech here, yes, but also lots of general science and some politics and weird humor thrown in.

Get Rich! Be Famous! Have Amazing Sex! Flat Abs! Rule the world! All in 8 easy steps!

A lot of Huffington Post stuff is crap, but this was pretty good, both for its content, and for its incidental commentary on magazine "sell lines" --- the text on the cover that entices you to buy a given issue.

Full disclosure: I used to write the sell lines for several national magazines. :)
