My name is John Boitnott and I am a tech writer and digital media consultant. I formerly worked as the Social Media Manager for Village Voice Media. I currently work with several companies to polish their online content and bring people to their Web sites.

Before I started at VVM I held dozens of positions at various TV newsrooms in the state of California. I worked in TV news from 1994 to 2009. I was a web editor for two years at KNTV, the NBC station serving the San Francisco Bay Area. I also worked as a writer there for one year. I held freelance writing positions at KGO, KRON and KPIX in San Francisco as well. I worked as a radio anchor, assignment desk manager, reporter, editor and producer at KEYT in Santa Barbara for 10 years.

    Hi John,
    just wanted to tell you that I’m flattered that I may have caught the attention of someone of your impressive stature to “follow” me on Twitter. I just realized this fact because I haven’t been online much lately. I also realize that Twitter “followers” are a bit ficklish and come and go in a NY minute, so if you’ve decided to “unfollow” me in the meantime, well, it was an honor while it lasted. Thank you:)

    Thank you for following me on Twitter. It is quite an eye-opener for me to come from walking bare footed with cracked heels( not on my accord) to being followed on Twitter!
