Welcome to Steve Wildstrom’s new blog

This is the new home for my musings on all thing technological, especially personal technology. Right now, this is as plain-vanilla as a WordPress blog can get, but I’ll be improving it soon.

For those who don’t know me, I spent the last 15 years as the Technology & You columnist for BusinessWeek before departing upon the magazine’s acquisition by Bloomberg. I plan to be posting here in the same vein as my posts of BusinesWeek‘s Tech Beat blog.

If you want to contact me directly, please send email to steve@wildstrom.com.

    Thank you for those 15 years of service! I look forward to reading more from you as you explore the many new opportunities that await you. Good luck on your new path!

    As I said earlier tonight – you and Walt Mossberg got the jobs that every Baby Boomer journalist dreamed of (well, at least the male ones). You’ve built a great following, and it’s going to follow you wherever you go. Keep us posted!

    Glad to see you are moving forward and have a new “home” online! Best of luck and I look forward to reading your material here.

    Best regards,

    Glad to see there is a place we can keep up on what you’re doing. I’m excited to see where this goes.

    Always enjoyed reading your columns – including reviews on several products of mine from Lexmark and Kodak. I have a wordpress.com blog (i focus on retail marketing) and have spent some hours tinkering with it – feel free to check it out for ideas of how to modify it and feel free to ask any questions.


    Good luck.

    Your podcast has always been my favorite to listen to. Hope you can continue that in the future.

    Congratulations on the blog. Always enjoyed your Business Week column and look forward to reading your new material and perhaps, new perspective via blogging.

    All best to you,

    Steve — I love that picture of you! You don’t appear to have any gadgets in that fishing vest. Hope that means you’re taking a (short) break — but that you’ll be back covering technology soon. See you in January, bk

    Keep writing. I value your perspective.

    Mr. Wildstrom: I have been a subscriber to BW for some time and over time I migrated to reading your column first…..mostly not bothering to read most of the rest of the magazine. Sorry to see that left BW (won’t renew subscription) but glad I was able to locate your blog. I look forward to reading you to help me sort out the tech trends even if I don’t totally understand everything you talk about.

    Good luck.
