Scott Fulton III

Contributing Editor

Since 1984, Scott has been a technology journalist, editor, author, and educator, having authored 17 books and way, way too many articles. Currently Scott also appears in The New Stack, and has recently appeared in Data Center Knowledge and FierceEnterpriseCommunications (for a time, a publication whose name and Scott's writing tendencies were well suited to each other). After considerable effort, Scott has learned to tweet, and hopes to apply these newfound brevity skills to other endeavors, such as grocery lists and shipping labels. As "D. F. Scott," during the late 1980s, Scott was a moderator for one of ZDNet's forerunner services, the Computer Shopper Information Exchange (C*SIX).
