Interview with Mark Gurman(@markgurman)

Although my efforts to get an interview with Chance the Rapper failed me I still have had some luck! Today we have an interview with an amazing tech-blogger. Mark Gurman is a highly accomplished journalist and writes for 9to5Mac.com.

Those who follow Apple know that Mark is on another level. I don't know if it's magic, or super intelligence but he really knows his stuff.

Here are my five questions with Mr. Mark Gurman...

How did you get into writing? And specifically tech writing?

I have always been interesting in technology and Apple specifically. In fall 2009, I located a domain name indicating Apple was working on a tablet. This was a few weeks before the original iPad was announced. After this discovery, I began writing about Apple. 

When did you start working at 9 to 5?

I started around the announcement of the first iPad. 

Apple watch...absolute flop or wild success?

Eventually a wild success, never a flop, nothing runaway on the first generation. 

If you could go back in time and talk to your 16 year old self, what would you say to him?

Do what's best for you. 

And what can we expect from you in the future?

I'm working on some startup businesses, but I feel I always still be connected to the news world in some fashion. We'll see. 

 

Thanks so much for your time Mark!
