Eric Knorr has led editorial teams and written about enterprise technology for nearly two decades. Most recently, he was Editor in Chief of InfoWorld, where he repositioned the publication to focus on emerging enterprise tech and earned a reputation as a thought leader through his “Ahead of the Curve” blog. He was among the first journalists to clearly explain the significance of cloud computing, big data analytics, devops, microservices, serverless computing, and other key technology trends.
Before switching to enterprise tech, Eric was editor of PC World, a founding editor of CNet, and the creator of the PC Bible, a best-selling book that won a Computer Press Award. He has also received a Jesse H. Neal Award for journalistic excellence. A native of Washington, DC, Eric is fascinated by the intersection between tech and society, particularly open data and the future of work. In his spare time, he cycles the hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. He holds a B.A. in English from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
