John Koetsier

I'm a technology journalist, an author, and a hockey player. I cover Apple and Twitter for VentureBeat. Most of my days are spent talking to startups and developers, and covering the latest and hottest technology news. Before journalism, I worked extensively in technology: managing teams of developers, building mobile apps, creating learning management systems, and managing products. I have always loved science fiction, and cut my teeth on Asimov and Heinlein. I still read at least one SF book a week. My first novel, No Other Gods, was written mainly in the wee hours of the morning, before the "real work" started. I'm hopeful, however, that enough readers will like it that I'll be able to write full time. I've also published a personal iPad app, the Wonderful Colorful House, which is the result of a bedtime story I told my daughter when she was just three. I'm 41, live in Vancouver, Canada, and have a wife, two sons, and a daughter. I have a BA in English and a Masters in educational technology.
