I have been writing about the intersection of science and ambition for over 20 years. (Disclosure: I am currently the Editor in Chief at Sandisk, but this has nothing to do with that. I write about computing architectures, but am rigorous about avoiding conflicts of interest.It's my promise to you.). I've also worked at Eastwick Communications, Greentech Media, CNET and CMP. My work has also been published in Forbes, the New York Times, National Geographic, Wired and other places and I speak somewhat regularly at conferences. I've visited the Orkney Islands to study wave power, filtered through reams of SEC documents, quizzed Elon Musk about EVs, and volunteered twice to be electrocuted. All for the sake of entertaining readers. One summer, I also gave out coupons for free nickels at a casino in Reno.
