I’m Ryan Block, co-founder of gdgt, a consumer electronics media startup (funded by True Ventures, Spark Capital, and Betaworks, among others). I’m also former editor / editor emeritus of Engadget, a web magazine and network of sites focused on obsessive coverage of consumer electronics and technology.
As a technology critic and commentator, I’ve been quoted by the BBC, Business Week, Chicago Tribune, The New York Times, The Guardian, The Times, and The Wall St. Journal. I have also appeared on such networks as the BBC, CNN, NPR, PRI, and G4. I was also named one of Forbes’s 2007 Web Celeb 25, and, for whatever reason, named one of Paper Magazine’s Beautiful People, 2006.
Way back in the day I used to work in network engineering, and also went to the New School University in New York. I currently reside in San Francisco, California with my better half and two cats.
