I'm just realized recently that I'm no longer '20+ years in the electronics industry', but have graduated quite unknowingly to 27 years. How did that happen?

After a few years in the engineering trenches after college, I got antsy and started travelling. First stop: NY. I got this gig where they actually ask you to go forth, travel, talk to really smart people, get as close to the truth as you can about developments in electronics, write about it, and do it again. It sounded too good to be true, so I spent many years just waiting for the other shoe to drop. It never did, so here I am.

I've held many editorial titles over the years, from technical editor of many beats, to editorial director. As VP/Brand Director at UBM Tech, Electronics, I get to apply much of I've learned to serve the electronics community by way of providing the best online and events information, educational and experience so you can find what you need, when you need it, so you can sometimes get home in time for dinner -- and maybe have some fun along the way.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or just want to blow off steam, you can call me at 516-474-5531 (cell) or email me at patrick.mannion@ubm.com (or 'off the record' at pmanns24@gmail.com.

The lack of quality manuals and documentation for developer tools greatly diminishes our ability to work well in subtle but important ways.

It's autumn in New England. The leaves are turning to red, orange, and gold, my roses are in their second bloom, and it's time to remove the air conditioner from the window. On September ...
