Another Tom’s offshoot (yes, we were busy this fall) covering the digital entertainment arena. I assigned and edited stories for the first couple of months of its operation.

Another Tom’s Hardware offshoot, aimed at the gamer in all of us. I assigned and edited stories and put together the site for its first couple of months’ of life.
This is another offshot of Tom’s Hardware and was developed by Barry Gerber and I to cover all things mobile. The site began operations in October 2005.
This print magazine begin September 1990 and is published by CMP Media. Many of the staff is still in the networking industry, or with CMP or the magazine itself after all these years. I was its first editor-in-chief and built a series of “real world test labs” that were co-located at mostly academic computer science campuses.
Here is the site for the online edition of the magazine.
This was the first in a series of sites for electronic engineers and chip designers that I did for the Electronics Group when I was at CMP in 2004. There are now close to a dozen different DesignLine sites. We rolled this one out in September to focus on automotive electronics, natch.
SearchSecurity Strom’s Tool Shed
The TechTarget site called Search Security wanted to start doing a regular series of product reviews, and I was their first reviewer for what we called the Tool Shed. These ran during 2001-3 and were a lot of fun to do.
VAR Business State of Technology 2002 and 2003
For VAR Business’s annual State of Technology 2002 issue, I managed, edited, assigned, and wrote a couple of the pieces too. This was the first time VAR Business had such a special printed supplement. I also organized, with the help of the XChange conference group, a special series of conference tracks that was coordinated with the editorial in the print issue, and an awards ceremony for the winners.
I did something similar for the State of Technology 2003 issue.
The online links have been removed sadly.

It is hard for me to get back to writing these essays after the events of the past month, but I’ll try. On a personal note, I want to thank those of you who took the time to email me and ask about my health and safety — the number of messages in the past several weeks from all over the world has been very touching and important for getting me back on track. The day of the attacks I was scheduled to appear on TechTV’s Silicon Spin show — that show was finally taped and aired last night. And my
Home Networking Survival Guide book is finally out in both physical and online stores: the link will take you to Amazon.
If you don’t want to buy the book, you can read my column here.
Project PortNet: Blueprint for Computers in Port Washington NY Schools
Nowadays, we generally accept having computers in the classroom. But back in 1995, it was a radical notion. I co-chaired a committee of parents, teachers, and administrators and we came up with this blueprint on how to do it. Several years later, I was elected to the board of trustees of the school district, and got even more involved in local politics.
Dave Piscitello and Lisa Phifer run a boutique consulting firm called Core Competence. Back in the day, we took a very complete look at the various kinds of all-in-one access/firewall/server appliances that could be used to run a small business in a box.
