My name is Howard Blumenthal. I have been writing about media, technology, books, music, creativity, and ideas for a long time.

I wrote a newspaper column for The New York Times Syndicate and The United Feature Syndicate. 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.

    Best regards
