Journalism: Net-related

Research and Education Networking, Westport, CT (1991)

Before there was a commercial Internet, there was a National Research and Education Network, or NREN, which was the TCP/IP network then escaping the confines of the research and science centers that gave it birth.  Meckler Publishing, a well known publisher of newsletters covering technologies for libraries, started Research and Education Networking to focus on the impact of the national network on library operations. I served as editor, and wrote and assigned articles for this monthly for about a year.

Government Technology Magazine, Sacramento, CA
Washington Bureau Chief
Covered the rapid evolution of national and state networking policy that developed with the expansion of and increased access to the Internet. Attended policy sessions and interviewed the leading agency and corporate executives at the time the commercial Internet was being formed and its rules and interconnection standards were being set.
