Technologies That Will Disrupt Your Business

Steve Wildstrom created BusinessWeek's Technology & You Column in 1994. The goal of the column, which appears weekly with regular supplements at BusinessWeek Online (, is to help readers understand and use personal technology to enhance their jobs and their lives.

Before starting Technology & You, Steve served as senior news editor in BusinessWeek's Washington bureau and edited the Washington Outlook column. Since joining the magazine in 1972, he has served in variety of capacities, covering politics, economics, and labor in Washington and Detroit and was also deeply involved in the computerization of editorial operations in the 1980s.

Steve also has deep interests in education and the arts. He is a founder and development chair of the Children's Chorus of Washington and a member of the local arrangements committee for the International Math Olympiad 2001.

A native of Detroit, Steve is a graduate of the University of Michigan. He lives with his wife Susan, a mathematics teacher, in Kensington, Maryland. They have two children, Jonathan, a software engineer in Austin, Tex., and David, a graduate student at the University of California at San Diego.
