Mike Himowitz, who has written a personal tech column for the Baltimore Sun for the past two decades and has been at the paper for 34 years, has accepted the paper’s buyout offer.
His last day was Wednesday. His last column for the paper will appear on Thursday. His previous two columns had looked at the Kindle and the latest iPhone.
In an e-mail that Himowitz sent to the staff Wednesday afternoon, he wrote, “I will miss you all.Â Only one word of advice:Â No matter how hard things seem in the next few months, rememberÂ this still beats workin’ for a living.”
Himowitz was also the science and medicine editor at the paper. He is a graduate of Williams College, where he majored in political science. His personal tech column runs in about a dozen other papers.
