Bio


David Pogue is the weekly personal-technology columnist for The New York Times and a monthly columnist for Scientific American. He is also an Emmy Award-winning tech correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning and the current host of NOVA ScienceNow, a post previously filled by Neil deGrasse Tyson, in which he offers an edgy take on science as he is immersed in hilarious and dangerous situations.

With over three million books in print, Pogue is one of the world's best-selling how-to authors. He has written or co-written seven books in the For Dummies series (including Macs, Magic, Opera, and Classical Music). In 1999, he launched his own series of complete, funny computer books called the Missing Manual series, which now includes 120 titles.

Pogue graduated summa cum laude from Yale in 1985 with distinction in music, then spent ten years conducting and arranging Broadway musicals in New York. He has won an Emmy, a Loeb Award for journalism, and an honorary doctorate in music. He has been profiled on 48 Hours and 60 Minutes.

Merging his musical background with his scientific knowledge, David Pogue delivers unique presentations that generally end with him sitting at a piano performing a couple of his famous tech-industry song parodies - "Don't Cry For Me, Cupertino" and "I Got YouTube" being some of his more popular ditties.
