About Mitch Wagner

Me-20120404-111926.jpgI’m a technology journalist, editor, social media enthusiast, erstwhile blogger, writer, husband, liberal, American, nonobservant Jew, and science fiction fan.

I live in San Diego with my wife, three cats and a dog. We did not intend to get quite so many pets. We’re a little confused how it happened.

I grew up on Long Island, and I’ve lived in New Jersey, Boston, and San Francisco.

I’m West Coast Bureau Chief for Light Reading, a news, information, events, and community business for communications providers.

I’m active on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. I blog, but only rarely, at Like I Was Saying. Mostly I use social media to share links and comments on whatever I find interesting on the Internet, of which there is a lot.

I’ve e-published two comic science fiction adventure short stories, “The Biggest Man in Lilliput” and “Mr. Shaddo.” I’ve completed a couple more short stories, one novel, and have finished drafts of two other novels. I’m taking a break from creative writing now. I hope to come back to it one day.

I lost 90 pounds between March 2009 and January 2011. Then I lost 10 more pounds in 2014. I’m keeping the weight off, and staying fit. That’s a big deal.
