Say Hello to the New Guy: Dave Johnson

Last Updated Dec 19, 2008 11:07 AM EST

dave-johnson.jpgPlease join me in welcoming the newest member of the Business Hacks team: Dave Johnson, a tech-industry veteran with 20 years of writing (and several million pizzas) under his belt.

During those two decades, Dave Johnson has written for countless magazines, covering technology ranging from the Commodore Amiga to 20-megapixel digital cameras. He's also the author of three dozen books, including the best-selling How to Do Everything with Your Digital Camera, 4th Edition.

In his spare time, Dave is "a frustrated novelist, a scuba instructor, and the drummer in a rock band."

Nepotism alert: I've actually co-authored more than a few of Dave's books (all the good ones, ironically). So don't be surprised if he and I "exchange words" from time to time. It's all in fun, I assure you.

And in all seriousness, I'm thrilled to have Dave onboard. Once you get a peek at some of his unique and insightful hacks, you will be, too.
