Announcing "Digital Hub," My New Column in Macworld

Yes, it's been a while since I've posted any dispatches here. I thank everyone who has written in asking when the next updates are coming.

They're coming soon.

Right now, I'm writing to explain my absence over the last couple of months and to make an announcement. Effective with the November 2003 issue (just hitting newsstands and subscriber mailboxes now), Macworld magazine will be running a new, monthly column by yours truly. Called "Digital Hub," the new column will include tips and project ideas for iLife and other video, photography, and audio tools.

The debut column is a collection of disc-burning tips for iTunes, iPhoto, and iDVD. In future installments, I'll look at the art and science of microphones, at scanning and adding old photos to iPhoto, and much, much more. It's going to be a fun ride, and I hope you'll accompany me. (And because I just heard someone ask, no, the column does not appear online -- it runs only in the print edition of Macworld.)

So that's where I've been -- working hard to launch a new column about the programs and subjects I love. I wrote a monthly column in Macworld for 11 straight years back in the 1980s and 90s, and I'm looking forward to returning to the magazine as a regular again.

And what about this site? Check back next week -- I have a nice little series of dispatches planned.
