Hi!. My name is John Paul Wohlscheid. I was always a fan of detective stories, and discovered the noir sub-genre in college via old time radio. Shortly after that, I started writing my own detective stories. I also became interested in the early history of computers after watching Robert X. Cringely's Triumph of the Nerds (and reading the book it was based on, Accidental Empires). Over the last couple of years, I've started writing about computer history. I'm also writing about modern technology on itsfoss.com. History has always fascinated me. I've read quite a bit about it. Last year, I decided to turn that interest in a bi-weekly newsletter.
