The difficulties faced by the newspaper industry are hard to deny. The Tribune Company, owner of the Daily Press, has been amongst the hardest hit. Accordingly, I prefer to not be judgmental. The folks at the paper are under intense pressure.

I miss writing the column and hope to find another outlet where I can continue to offer, what I consider to be, an interesting alternative perspective of technology issues and how they affect our lives on a daily basis.

Here, you'll still find a form to send feedback, as well as an archive of all the columns.

I want to sincerely thank everyone who's ever read "Spoutin' Off" over the years, with a special shout-out to everyone who's also written to me.

I hope our paths cross again...
