I am available for lectures, media interviews, patent research, and private projects.

@ I've been an author, adviser, and/or expert source on computer history topics for 4BC News Talk 1116, the Asbury Park Press, ArsTechnica, Bankrate.com (also via MSN Money and Fox Business), BBC Radio, CNN [alternate link], Esquire, Hackaday (here and here), IEEE Annals of the History of Computing, IEEE The Institute, Information & Culture, the John Mauchly estate, Marketwatch, Minyanville, News 12 New Jersey [alternate link], NPR (KPCC/Southern California), the Philadelphia Inquirer, Reuters, Slashdot TV, and Yahoo Movies.

@ My primary expertise is the history of portable computers. I was an adviser for the mobile computing portion of the Computer History Museum's "Revolution" exhibit. I often serve as a resource for other historians, media [Modern Marvels, MSNBC, International Journal of Mobile Human-Computer Interaction], and students. I perform patent research as a contractor via VintageTech.

@ I frequently lecture and/or exhibit at hobbyist events such as Hackers On Planet Earth, Maker Faire, New Jersey Science & Engineering Festival, Philadelphia Science Carnival, Trenton Computer Festival, and Vintage Computer Festival.

@ I co-founded and serve as president of a user group, MARCH [Mid-Atlantic Retro Computing Hobbyists]. MARCH activities include administering an email list, hosting the annual Vintage Computer Festival East, and operating a bricks-and-mortar computer museum at the InfoAge Science Center in Wall, N.J.

@ I participate in the Society for the History of Technology's Special Interest Group for Computers, Information, and Society.

@ I published a weekly e-newsletter, Technology Rewind [formerly Computer Collector], from Jan. 2004 to March 2006. In that role I was cited by BusinessWeek TV, eWeek, IEEE History Center [pdf], and TMCnet. Click here for the newsletter archives. Later I blogged for Computerworld.

@ I spent 15 years in technology journalism. My work appeared in Electronic Component News, eWeek, the former FierceEnterprise, IEEE The Institute, Law Technology News, Light Reading, Mobile Enterprise, Technology Review, TMC Labs, Wireless Week, and elsewhere.
