About Me!


Welcome to my personal blog. What you'll find here is reviews of gadgets, goodies, and books I've found interesting, giveaways (with honest reviews) for products I've been offered for my readers, information about interesting things happening around Boston, answers to reader questions, coupons, and freebie offers, as well as anything else I might find interesting.

As far as who I am... I've been writing about Java technologies since 1995. I've authored ten books and hundreds of mostly online articles. I used to speak at technology conference around the globe, but have mostly stopped that since becoming a dad of a now six-year old boy. I've also ghost written material through various web sites, including basic web content, search friendly material, and articles. I'm an avid couponer who is also fond of the occasional sweepstakes/giveaway, and I've dabbled in genealogy in my spare time.


John Zukowski...
