This is the home page of Steve Wildstrom. I am, amopng other things, a founder and columnist as Tech.pinions, a site for tech industry analysis and commentary. For more than 15 years, I wrote BusinessWeek's weekly Technology & You column.
I remain passionate about technology and how it can be used to make people's lives better, more productive, and more fun. Mini-musings, plus pointers to Tech.pinions posts, show up on Twitter and Facebook.
I have other passions, too. I am a founder and secretary of the Children's Chorus of Washington, which I will immodestly say is one of the finest children's choruses in the U.S. and which performs a dual role of being both a first-rate performing group (venues have ranged from the Kennedy Center to Carnegie Hall to the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires and St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican) and a fine educational institution.
I am passionate about education in general and particularly STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education. I am deeply concerned that the No Child Left Behind Act's focus on the vital work of improving the skills of under-performing students has led to a serious neglect of the equally vital needs of our best students and is imperiling the leadership of the next generation. That's one reason I support the outstanding work of the Center for Excellence in Education and I am a fan of the Intel Science Talent Search.
And I'm passionate about my family, especially--not that I want to pick favorites--my little grandson Nevin. He34's now four years old and has a little brother, but I like this picture.
