I just published my first in what will be a whole lot of New York Times personal technology articles for non-nerds. "A Universe of Gadget Advice" leads those of us (read: me) who can't follow the gadgetspeak on Gizmodo through the hell — well, the heck of online last-minute gadget gift shopping. NYT techniology [sic] editor Damon Darlin turns out to be a perfectly nice guy who gets my jokes. And then edits them into English. I'll be writing about cellphones, cameras, TVs, and any Web 2.0 stuff that survives Ted at Uncov. I'm pretty sure I'm now the first writer to simultaneously contribute to the NYT, the Wall Street Journal and Gawker Media. Look, you've got your creepy life goals, and I've got mine.
