 Robert Cringely Biography

Robert X. Cringely, the pen name of technology journalist Mark Stephens, is a journalist and best-selling author. Cringely was a tech columnist for InfoWorld, a trade paper read each week by more than 600,000 computer professionals.

It was at InfoWorld that Robert Cringely became a household name throughout the industry. After leaving InfoWorld, Cringely's work has appeared in The New York Times, Newsweek, Forbes, Upside, Success, Worth, and many other magazines and newspapers.

Cringely's 1992 national best-seller Accidental Empires: How the Boys of Silicon Valley Make Their Millions, Battle Foreign Competition and Still Can't Get a Date became the basis for Triumph of the Nerds, the highly acclaimed three-hour miniseries that was a runaway success for PBS in 1996.

Cringely's show NerdTV, which premiered in 2003, is a weekly interview program distributed by PBS purely over the Internet - a first for any TV network.

He was the host of the PBS documentary titled Electric Money, which took him to financial capitals as well as remote islands around the world to report on the many impacts of e-commerce on mankind and its traditional monetary systems. He also hosted and helped produce other shows for PBS including Plane Crazy, a three-hour series about aviation and human frailty; Nerds 2.0.1: A Brief History of The Internet and Y2K: The Winter of Our Disconnect.

His most recent writings can be found on his site I, Cringely and at Adam Smith's Money World.
