About Mitch Wagner

Me-20120404-111926.jpgI’m a technology journalist, writer, husband, American, Jewish and a science fiction fan.

I live in San Diego with my wife, dog and three cats. We did not intend to get quite so many pets.

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

I’m executive editor of Light Reading, which provides news, insights and information for the global communications networking and services industry – telcos, cable companies, and the like. I focus on telco cloud, network virtualization, network containerization, SDN and NFV. If you work in the industry, those things will be meaningful to you.

I’m on the board of the La Mesa-Foothills Democratic Club. I handle communications and social media.

I’m active on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Mitch’s Newsletter. I occasionally update Mitch’s Blog

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.
