John is one of the best known and most controversial commentators on the computer industry. He asks his guests the hard questions, cutting through jargon and hype to give listeners information they can use. With his dry wit and irreverent sense of humor, John keeps RealComputing moving at an entertaining pace as he prods guests to make technical subjects easier to grasp for the average computer user--whether they are novices or experienced pros.

On RealComputing John humanizes an industry that can get awfully technical. The average user doesn't usually have access to the really useful inside information from the people in the business. As the personal computing industry grows, so do the ways it affects our everyday lives. Many pre-established systems governing the transfer of information and the rights of individuals using this new medium have become either inadequate or irrelevant. New policies are being proposed and enacted all the time, often for reasons that are not obvious. For instance, international trade issues can affect copyright law; policies affecting electronic speech may be driven by tax policy. When John explores these topics on the show, he tries to get to the heart of the matter, and solicit various perspectives."

Known as the "computer industry's toughest critic," John is consistently critical, but has no particular axe to grind. He built his reputation from the inception of the personal computer, and uses historical perspective and experience to sift through the marketing hype. John's aim is to generate thought and give listeners the information and perspectives they need to make their own decisions intelligently.

The definitive "workaholic," John not only hosts RealComputing each week nationwide on NPR, but also ZDTV's Silicon Spin on a daily basis----and still finds time to write regular columns for online and print publications including:,, Boardwatch, Vancouver Sun, PC Magazine, PC Computing, MicroTimes.
