How did you get to become an expert in your key topics?
I began my career as a journalist but gravitated quickly to working in the semiconductor industry in the early 1980s. I moved to a communications job with a mainframe company in the mid-’80s and then ran the western division of the American Electronics Association from 1999 to 2004. I then became Executive Producer of a nationally syndicated TV program covering the technology industry and left the show in 2010 to become a full-time journalist, writing for the San Francisco Examiner, CBS News, and now for SiliconANGLE Media.
What do you think the future holds in this space?
As we have covered in SiliconANGLE, we are seeing the rise of supercloud – whole new companies and industries being built on top of cloud-native platforms. Cybersecurity will continue to be a major concern, with deeper and more frequent global disruptions likely to occur. The financial system will be transformed by the rise of the blockchain.
