Articles by Jim Freund available on the Web
As a freelance writer, I review software and write various other pieces concerning the computer industry for several publications. Some, of course, are available online. Here are links to those articles. I have sequenced them by publication and then chronologically.

At CrossNodes, I was not only the Managing Editor, but the chief writer, as well.  My articles differed from most of my other work, in that the audience was assumed to be computer (specifically network) professionals; and the majority of my previous writing was for consumer publications. The focus was timely issues of concern to networks, such as breaking virus alerts, alert hoax debunking, technology trends, and product reviews.  A good many of these stories were written and published with less than a 24-hour turnaround.  These links represent a small sampling.
