Senior Contributor, newsblaze.com

Elsewhere on the page, you will see my original certifications for the Commonwealth of PA, a letter of commendation from the ATF, letters of commendation from Gov. Ann Richards of Texas and Johns Hopkins APL for my work with the disabled. I served as an emergency management coordinator for 30 years and hold multiple current FEMA certificates. I'm also in ServPa.

Siliconsamurai, if anyone cares, comes from getting my first regular assignment as a game columnist for Rainbow Magazine (Tandy Color Computer long before the IBM PC) and having both studied and taught sword techniques.

In Government Computer News I wrote as the Power User for several decades under various editors and publishers including Post-Newsweek Tech Media.

And for TechRepublic.com where I wrote The Locksmith security column for several years under my real name.

I have been published approximately 18,000 times (bylined and paid - that means each piece had my name on it, i.e. not counting Twitter or blogs.) These include columns, reviews, editorials, buyer's guides, and news reports, including thousands written for the first independent online news service, Newsbytes News Service.

In addition to my 20-30 stories each week for Newsbytes News Service, I have

written directly for: ANTIC (an Atari magazine), AI Expert, Assistive Technology News, Baltimore Computer Digest, BYTE (for three years), Capital Computer Digest, CD ROM Review, Closing the Gap (for the handicapped computer user), ComputerPress (Moscow, U.S.S.R), Computer Currents (four years), Computer Language, Computer Craft, Computer Shopper (five years), Cruising World (yachting magazine), Electronic Business, The Locksmith Journal, FuelLine (automotive trade journal), 80 MICRO, Government Computer News (24 years), GCN Shopper, GCN State&Local, Modern Electronics (3 years), PCM (Tandy compatibles and portables), PC Resource, PICO, PC Magazine, PC Tech Journal, PC World, Computers in Science, Science PROBE!, ShareWare, Soft Sector (compatibles), Systems&Network Integration, ID Systems (4 years), Sensors (The Journal of Machine Perception), System's Integration (newsletter), RAINBOW (Tandy Color Computer- 5 years), Stocks and Commodities, TechRepublic, IBM Compatibles Plus, TI Professional Computing, Reseller World (3 years), Reseller Management, Computer Monthly (3 years), and several other publications.

My very first review for BYTE was a benchmarking article on OCRs (Optical Character Recognition) published in the April 1987 issue of BYTE. This was listed in Cambridge Scientific Abstracts' Journal of Computers and Information Science.

My Letter Perfect column for novice writers appeared in Writer's Guidelines magazine for more than a year and I wrote the Silicon Warrior (children's game column) for PCM (Tandy PCs) magazine.

The Enabled Computer (column) ran in Computer Monthly and on Newsbytes for several years and most recently in Assistive Technology News until that newspaper ceased publication.

I have served as Senior Editor for both Computer Monthly (magazine) and Reseller World (magazine).

I wrote the Locksmith Column for TechRepublic.com (CNET, now CBS) for 6 years.
