CMP/UBM (Strom archive)

I have a long history with CMP Media, now called United Business Media, having worked at four full-time editorial positions. In 2013-2014, I have been writing for one of their blogs called Solution Providers for Retail, how the channel can help retail businesses with their technology needs. Sadly, the blog has been since retired.

Earlier, I wrote a few pieces for a blog of Dr. Dobbs called Develop in the Cloud, mostly on app dev topics; and others for Internet Evolution.

A few years ago I wrote a series of freelance pieces for

My first position with CMP was the founding editor-in-chief to launch Network Computing magazine back in the summer of 1990 — good times. (Here is a guest column that I wrote in 2000 on the magazine’s 10th anniversary.) My most recent article was Freddie Mac cashes in on Web services (9/18/06), a case study on the financial services firm.

In the fall of 2004, I worked for the Electronics Group and help launch a series of Web sites aimed at electronics designers under the label, and hired its first staff of site producers. I wrote one  article called Lessons learned from 802.11n (11/1/06) for the WirelessNet DesignLine site.Finally, I started doing freelance work for VAR Business in 2000, and worked full-time as their Technology Editor during 2002-2004. Here is a page of the highlights from that era. (Some of these links are outdated.)
