Author Notes

Brian Livingston is an investigative journalist with more than two decades of experience who is now training his sights directly on the investment industry. Based in New York City from 1984 through 1991, he was the assistant information technology manager of UBS Securities; a computer consultant for Morgan Guaranty Trust Co. (now JPMorgan Chase); and technology adviser to Lazard Frères.

As a consumer advocate exposing the dark side of high tech, he wrote more than 1,000 articles from 1991 through 2010 for such publications as PC World, CNET, InfoWorld, PC Mag, and eWeek. He founded the Windows Secrets Newsletter, which grew to 400,000 subscribers, and co-authored 11 books in the Windows Secrets series (John Wiley & Sons). The 6th Annual Internet Content Summit in New York City named him Entrepreneur of the Year for his creation of a profitable "pay what you wish" model to deliver technology information to consumers. He is a recipient of the Award for Technical Excellence from the National Microcomputer Managers Association. Livingston is president of the Seattle regional chapter of the American Association of Individual Investors.
