About Me: Dan Ackerman leads CNET's coverage of computers and gaming. He's written about technology and culture for more than 20 years and appears regularly as a TV talking head, including many years as the in-house tech expert on CBS This Morning. Dan's non-fiction gaming business history book, "The Tetris Effect" (Hachette/PublicAffairs), covers a tangled web of software licensing deals in the Cold War Soviet Union, and has earned rave reviews from the New York Times, Fortune, LA Review of Books, and many other publications. "Upends the standard Silicon Valley, Steve Jobs/Mark Zuckerberg technology-creation myth... the story shines." -- The New York Times
