How to Reach Me


About Me: A born browser of dictionaries and a big fan of Google Translate, a lifelong New Englander burrowed into the outskirts of Boston, Jon Skillings is managing copy editor at CNET. He's been with CNET since 2000, after a decade in tech journalism at the IDG News Service, PC Week and an AS/400 magazine -- and before that a stint as a US Army linguist trained in Polish but assigned to a post where he had to speak German day in and day out. When he's editing these days, Jon typically has Spotify serving up one jazz playlist after another.
