InformationWeek Reports / Network Computing

Kurt Marko is a technology writer and IT industry veteran, now focused on IT analysis and reporting after a varied career that has spanned virtually the entire high-tech food chain from chips to systems. Upon graduating from Stanford University with a BS and MS in Electrical Engineering, Kurt spent several years as a semiconductor device physicist, doing process design, modeling and testing. He then joined AT&T Bell Laboratories as a memory chip designer and CAD and simulation developer.

Moving to Hewlett-Packard, Kurt started in their laser printer R&D lab doing electrophotography research, for which he earned a patent, but his love of computers eventually led him to join their nascent technical IT group. He spent 15 years as an IT engineer and was a lead architect for several enterprise-wide infrastructure projects at HP including their Windows domain infrastructure, remote access service, Exchange email infrastructure and managed Web services. For the past seven years, Kurt has been a frequent contributor to several IT trade and consumer technology publications and industry conferences. He is currently an independent IT consultant and editor-at-large for InformationWeek and Network Computing.
