Though my Twitter abandonment. 16 years is a lot of data, which I thought was lost until @manton built it a home. Micro.blog is now my primary residence.
I started programming pocket calculators in the 1970s, discovered online communities in the 1980s, and have been writing about Apple and personal technology for over three decades.
Many of the places I wrote for — CompuServe, eWorld, and MacFixit to name a few — have long since vanished. Along the way I contributed to a few books and presented at Macworld. For the last five years I have had a syndicated newspaper column titled Bob’s Tech Talk.
Past and present hobbies include making photographs, collecting books, flying airplanes, watching films, and reading. I live in California with my wife and a pint-sized Australian Shepherd named Bailey.
