Strom currently writes more than 100 articles a year on technology for ITworld.com, TechTarget, Network World, Dice.com, Slashdot.org, and numerous corporate blogs. These cover a wide range of topics on cloud computing, virtualization, Web applications, network infrastructure, and data center operations. The best place to view this body of work can be found at Strominator.com.
When it came time for Prentice Hall to look for an expert on Internet email, Strom had the opportunity to work with Marshall Rose, one of the inventors of the basic email protocols as a co-author to pen the landmark book, Internet Messaging: From the Desktop to the Enterprise. Following on that success, he also wrote one of the first how-to books called Home Networking Survival Guide for Osborne/McGraw Hill.
Previous editorial management
Strom has started and run dozens of print and Web magazines, including being editor-in-chief at Tom’s Hardware.com and the founding editor-in-chief at Network Computing and Digital Landing.com. He ran the B2B group of websites for ReadWrite.com during 2011. He also was the technology editor at Baseline Magazine from 2008-2011 and was on the original launch of PC Week’s first demographic section called Connectivity back in 1988. He also created and ran one of the early daily email newsletters for Inside.com on IT security from 2016-2019.
Custom consulting, white papers and screencasts
Strom produces short product review screencast videos that can help his vendor clients get their message across. These videos are published on a variety of websites, including Webinformant.tv. Companies come to Strom to try out new computer networking products and understand how they will work at some of the largest corporate IT shops. This hands-on approach permeates his work and gives him a firm foundation of what to recommend for his audiences and readers.
