Christopher Wink is the Editorial Director and cofounder of Technical.ly, the local technology news network. He oversees editorial content, event programming and leads development into new markets for the company. He has reported on local entrepreneurship communities since 2008. Previously, Wink worked for a homeless advocacy nonprofit and was a freelance reporter for a variety of publications. He writes regularly about news innovation and best business practices on his personal blog.
Much of the reporting for this project was contributed by Juliana Reyes, Stephen Babcock, Julie Zeglen, Tony Abraham, Tajha Chappellet-Lanier, Lindsay Podraza, Lalita Clozel, Brady Dale and Andrew Zaleski.
This publication features original reporting from Technical.ly staff and contributors, in addition to the editorial staff of our sister site Generocity.org. Much of it was done for this publication first. Some portions had already appeared in some form on Technical.ly, including in one of our local sites, and other portions ran separately there. But this collection has never appeared edited before in this way.
Comcast NBCUniversal is a partner and sponsor of the Tomorrow Tour, the event series that helped inform this publication. Select members of their team had early access to this content but, as always, Technical.ly editorial staff had final say on its content.
Several other firms sourced for this report, including Aol, SmartLogic and Monetate, have sponsored Technical.ly in the past. When appropriate, this is referenced more specifically in the ebook, but any such support is unrelated to this reporting.
