About TechMan

Written by Matt Kennedy on .

I am Ced Kurtz, also known as TechMan, an editor at the Post-Gazette for more than 20 years. Although not formally trained in computer science, I have had a personal interest in computers since the early 1980s. I first worked on TRS 80s and have been on the installation team for four newspaper computer systems. When the PG was looking for someone to take over the TechMan column that runs in the Sunday Business section, I suggested doing the column from the point of view of the everyday technology user. I have tried to write my column and blog so that it can be understood by technology non-professionals.
