My Geek News column ran for a dozen years in two Coloradan newspapers, the Boulder County Business Report and the Northern Colorado Business Report [Renamed BizWest in 2014].
In addition I’ve had a regular column in eBusiness Journal, a Canadian magazine, and a regular column for a couple of years in a freelancing/contracting magazine, PD News.
