Rob Pegoraro tries to make sense of computers, consumer electronics, telecom services, the Internet, and other things that beep.
Not long after receiving a bachelor’s degree in international relations from Georgetown University (as in, zero academic credentials to write about technology), Rob began writing the occasional story about video games or online services for the Washington Post. One piece led to another, and eventually to a 12-year stint as the paper’s consumer-tech columnist that also saw him write for almost every section of the Post and appear on the front page all of three times.
Since 2011, Rob has covered the digital landscape as a freelance contributor to USA Today, Discovery News, PCMag.com, the Consumer Electronics Association, and other online and print outlets. He has met most of the authors of the Internet, attended CES 16 years in a row, and may be the only person to have written for both Reader’s Digest and Boing Boing.
