“A Relapsed Tech Journalist (I’m CNNMoney’s tech editor), Itinerant Personal-finance Blogger, General Literary Roustabout”
Our #FollowFriday-worthy recommendation this week is Stacy Cowley, tech editor and writer for CNNMoney, where she also oversees the site’s daily coverage of the industry’s top companies, personalities and events.
You will love this dynamo’s posts on CNN. Stacy not only covers the tech and biz world. When she’s not posting a thought-provoking article on CNNMoney pages, you will find her sharing her IMs on CNNMoney’s Tech Tumbler (one of the most entertaining and interesting pages within the CNN website).
And once in a while, you will also find one of Stacy’s foodie ramblings on CNN’s Eatocracy page.
This versatile writer began covering the tech world during the dot-com days for Silicon Alley Reporter, and served as a New York-based correspondent for IDG News and CRN Magazine. Stacy’s writing have appeared at publications including the Village Voice, Baltimore Sun, Bookslut and Edible Brooklyn.
Today, in addition to her work as editor at CNNMoney, Stacy also posts personal blogs at various websites.

Here are thoughts and musings from Stacy’s point of view:
Laughs at: The running IM conversations I have through the day — we run the most amusing ones on CNNMoney’s Tech Tumblr
Hopes: To still be an active journalist 50 years from now
Thinks: The tech field feels awfully frothy these days. I have occasional dot-com PTSD flashbacks …
Reveals: I still use a Palm (Tungsten E2), possibly the last functional one in existence
Dream Coffee Date: My favorite authors: Greg Egan and Michael Marshall Smith
Is Inspired By: Persistence. People who have some big crazy vision — an invention, an athletic feat, a work of art — and purse it doggedly day after day.
