This is my last weekly column for The Verge and Recode — the last
weekly column I plan to write anywhere. I’ve been doing these
almost every week since 1991, starting at the Wall Street Journal,
and during that time, I’ve been fortunate enough to get to know
the makers of the tech revolution, and to ruminate — and
sometimes to fulminate — about their creations.
Now, as I prepare to retire at the end of that very long and
world-changing stretch, it seems appropriate to ponder the
sweep of consumer technology in that period, and what we can
Godspeed on whatever’s next, Walt.
