Journalism

Matthew S. Smith journalism I have over 12 years experience diving deep into highly technical topics and digging up answers that will entertain and inform your audience. The bulk of my work covers personal computing past, present, in future. I’ve toured the history of x86 computers, but I’ve also interviewed engineers on topics like quantum computing, edge computing, and AI. I have the background needed to cover these topics for B2B publications, but I specialize in translating these complex and unapproachable topics into snappy copy that mainstream readers can enjoy.

Reviews

Matthew S. Smith reviews Reviews are where I started years ago, and they remain a personal favorite. I’m a firm believer in exhaustive, standardized testing, viewed through the lens of daily use. Over the years, I’ve examined nearly every piece of consumer tech available, from $10,000 gaming desktops to cutting-edge electric bikes.

Affiliate content

I’m no stranger to best-of guides, comparisons, and other articles that can drive revenue to your site. In addition to writing hundreds of these articles over the past decade, I’ve led team projects to improve the quality of service journalism. The result? A 275% year-over-year increase in monthly commissions.

Video

Yes, I can even pivot to video! While I’ve spent most of my career as a writer, I have experience in front of a camera in both live and scripted formats. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmChHgMjafI&feature=emb_logo
