Anthony is the Silicon News editor-in-chief. Many dedicated readers know him from his prior blog The Coffee Desk before its sale in early 2010, which was featured in everything from Yahoo! News, Slashdot.org, and countless other news agencies pulling in millions of unique visitors a month. He has ample experience with software, hardware, and networking, having been employed by numerous companies ranging from U.S. government agencies, research and development firms and Google. Though his approach is usually technical and dry, he is notorious for his subtle and witty observational humor.
Mark is a “veteran” (and current) system administrator for a local IT firm in his hometown. He is notorious from his Coffee Desk days as the “funny guy” of the editorial staff, writing some pieces for sheer comic relief to the pleasure of many readers (example). Aside from his priceless humor, he has ample insight in the fields of networking and programming given his years of experience with them, often making quips about his own age in the process. Mark is the oldest member of the editors, and by far the most regular. Contributor, that is.
Chris started at The Coffee Desk during its hey-day as an infrequent guest author who slowly grew to becoming a mainline contributor. He is a business grad student at USC who is very fluent with technology and the ever-evolving web, and has priceless contributions to Silicon News as a result. He is known for looking at the “big picture” of things, namely new technological trends, and analyzing them from a business perspective that so many IT professionals tend to glaze over in their focus on the technology’s specifics.
