(Updated 3/30/2017) The Dodge Retort (TDR) covers my favorite topics: technology, media and just plain interesting stuff. This is my third blog, preceded by a yearlong stint at Thinking Tech at CBSi site SmartPlanet.com and two years at Green Engineering (born Design Engineering-at-Large) at engineering magazine Design News where I was editor-in-chief until February, 2009.
Most recently, I was the community manager at the EnterpriseCIOForum.com, a custom online community for CIOs sponsored by Hewlett Packard and produced by IDG. After five years of doing that, I decided to return to freelance journalism in July, 2015. Real independent journalism, that is.
The links below go to pages showcasing my 40 years as an online and print journalist.
Who should read TDR? The answer is anyone who wants to take advantage of insight accumulated during my 37 years following technology, engineering and business (PC Week, WSJ and Boston Globe among others): specific topics include consumer electronics, social networks, IT, tractor repair, products that piss me off, the reinvention of media and other eclectic subjects. As always, your comments here or to me at firstname.lastname@example.org are welcome.
