My name is Howard Blumenthal. I have been writing about media, technology, books, music, and ideas for a long time. For example, I wrote a newspaper column called “The Hi-Tech Home” for the New York Times Syndicate and United Features; the column ran in about a hundred newspapers including The Chicago Sun-Times, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Cleveland Plain-Dealer, many Gannett papers, and in Puerto Rico, Pakistan, and elsewhere. I’ve written about two dozen books about creativity, business, marketing, music, technology, history, and media. I’ve been a guest on hundreds of radio and television appearances.
The blog contains several sections, all personal and professional interests. Television and related media commentary is an extension of my book, This Business of Television (Billboard Books / Random House), written with Oliver Goodenough.
