Walt Mossberg

Walt Mossberg spent more than a quarter-century writing and thinking about technology, first as the creator of the Personal Technology column in The Wall Street Journal and then as co-founder and co-executive editor of the technology website Recode and a columnist at The Verge and Recode. He began his journalism career in 1970 at The Wall Street Journal, where he was a reporter and served as deputy chief of the Washington bureau before starting the Personal Technology column in 1991. With Kara Swisher, another Journal columnist, Mossberg founded the technology website; he and Swisher were also the co-creators and co-producers of D: All Things Digital, the premier annual technology conference that became the Code Conference after they left the Journal to start Recode in 2014. Mossberg retired in 2017 and is now writing a book about the revolution he witnessed in personal technology.
