Houston Chronicle tech editor Silverman joining Forbes
Houston Chronicle tech editor Dwight Silverman, who is taking the paper’s buyout offer, is joining Forbes magazine.
“I’ll be writing about personal technology for Forbes’ website,” he wrote on Twitter. “There will be online posts and there will be a newsletter, though the mix has yet to be determined. Some of what I do may end up in the venerable Forbes magazine.”
Silverman has been at the Chronicle for 30 years. Silverman manages the TechBurger website, writes about personal technology for HoustonChronicle.com and the print edition. He also writes a weekly tech column, also called TechBurger, and a weekly newsletter, Release Notes.
He has been with the Houston Chronicle since 1990 and has worked as an assistant state editor, business reporter, technology columnist, interactive journalism editor, social media manager and manager of the subscriber website. He moved to the website staff in 2000 and was responsible for helping bring blogging and social media to chron.com.
He’s also worked at the San Antonio Current, the San Antonio Light and the Beaumont Enterprise.
Silverman is a regular panelist on This Week in Tech, the popular tech news podocast at twit.tv, and is a former co-host of Technology Bytes, a weekly computer call-in show on KPFT-FM.
He is the author of several computer books, including “Running Windows on Your Mac” (Peachpit) and “Switching to a Mac: No Problem” (Wiley & Sons).
