The Insightful Troll

Rants and ruminations.

Mossberg: The Disappearing Computer

| Comments

From his last column for Recode and The Verge:

This is my last weekly column for The Verge and Recode — the last weekly column I plan to write anywhere. I’ve been doing these almost every week since 1991, starting at the Wall Street Journal, and during that time, I’ve been fortunate enough to get to know the makers of the tech revolution, and to ruminate — and sometimes to fulminate — about their creations.

Now, as I prepare to retire at the end of that very long and world-changing stretch, it seems appropriate to ponder the sweep of consumer technology in that period, and what we can expect next.

I have been reading the various columns and stories by Walter Mossberg since my college days. Was on of the first people to really report and make sense of the computing revolution to the average person. Will be missed by many.

Good luck on whatever’s next, Walt.
