In the 90s, as a senior editor at PC World, I led a team of writers and editors to win some of the most prestigious journalism awards ever garnered by a trade magazine at the time. I launched the @Home section of the magazine in a time when computers in the home were big putty blobs for nerds. I uncovered a series of slippery scams in the computer industry, which was something of a Wild West at the time. And I worked as a consumer advocate, acting as a liaison between consumers and high-tech companies. It was a fascinating time to be covering tech. I covered the birth of, among many other things, the Internet.
