True/Slant: Log In

I have been asked to write about technology for True/Slant, a blog network. (Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal wrote about True/Slant here.) I am excited about my column, Log In. I have written tech stories, including articles published in the New York Times, USA Today, and Wired, for twenty years and I hope people will come to True/Slant to read my articles. Log In will focus on putting technology into perspective through reported journalism.

I will continue to write about sports and post items on In the Fray, and continue with my other journalism.

Printers Row Recap

I had a great time at Chicago's Printers Row Lit Fest. I was on an excellent panel with Jonathan Eig who wrote Opening Day and Luckiest Man, and Melissa Isaacson who wrote a biography about Lou Pinella. Dan McGrath of the Chicago Tribune did a great job moderating, and we had a standing room only crowd and there were lots of questions about my book. I also posted a piece about Printers Row, and publishing in general, on my True/Slant column.

Printers Row Lit Fest

I will be in Chicago on Sunday for the Printers Row Lit Fest. Printers Row is one of the largest literary festivals in the country.

I will be talking about my book, The Galloping Ghost, on a sports biography panel. My panel starts at 1 p.m. and will be held at the University Center (more details here). The panel will be hosted by Dan McGrath of the Chicago Tribune.

If you happen to be at the festival, please stop by and say hello.
