David Pogue is a Great Source for Techie Info

I really enjoy New York Times technology columnist David Pogue. He has been a true inspiration for me on many blog posts I have written here. Over the years Pogue introduced me to such wonderful techie innovations as Pandora, ChaCha, Jott, HeyTell and others.

The first review of the iPad I read was written by Pogue. Why? Because I knew his opinion would be objective and insightful.

David Pogue is not only a gifted technology writer, he is also a fascinating individual: Here are some facts about him taken directly from his website:

He studied music, English, and computer science at Yale.

After college, Pogue moved to New York City, with aspirations to compose Broadway shows. For ten years, he worked as conductor, synthesizer programmer, arranger, or assistant on Broadway shows

He also founded and taught, for several years, the beginning magic courses at the New School for Social Research and New York's Learning Annex.

He began writing for Macworld magazine in 1988.

In 1992, IDG Books asked Pogue to write Macs for Dummies.

In November 2000, Pogue became the personal-technology columnist for the New York Times.

In 2012, he was named the new host for the spinoff series "NOVA ScienceNow," which premieres in October 2012.

Here is a list of some of David Pogue's recent blog topics:
