Having spent the dot-com boom and bust years in Silicon Valley, he's had a front-row seat for the evolution of the technologies that have been the foundation of IT-powered business—from the growth of client/server computing, through the birth of the commercial Internet, to the emergence of cloud computing, social media and big data. He has been a regular contributor to publications such as Investor's Business Daily, Baseline, Network Computing and TechTarget, as well as numerous technology community sites.

A 1988 graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism, Tony spends his non-work hours chasing his two little boys around, handing money to his teenage son, and desperately trying to get his wife to answer her cell phone.
