Shoshana Berger

Tablets, tablets, blah blah blah. That was the news out of CES (the Consumer Electronics Show) in Vegas last week. But wither the products for design snobs? I tracked down a few:

We are extremely excited to introduce the newest member of the California Home +Design blogging team, former ReadyMade Editor-in-Chief, Shoshana Berger.   Shoshana got her magazine chops at Wired in the pre-Facebook era, then went on to write for The New York Times, Spin, Salon, The San Francisco Chronicle, Business 2.0, Travel and Leisure, and Sunset. In 1999, she became an editorial director for Young & Rubicam’s Brand Futures division. She cofounded ReadyMade magazine in 2001 and served as its Editor-in-Chief for nine years. She is the coauthor of ReadyMade: How to Make Almost Everything (Crown, 2005), which was featured in the 2007 Cooper-Hewitt Design Triennial. She has lectured and taught workshops at Stanford, the Dallas Museum of Art, IDEO, Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, and in Clay Felker’s magazine program at UC Berkeley. We are thrilled to have Shoshana blogging for us weekly on californiahomedesign.com.  Check in on Wednesdays for her chronicles of the California luxury DIY movement. Last week, she profiled Berkeley-based custom furniture-maker, Thomas Wold and this week she's taking a look at Edgar Blazona of TrueModern.   The most successful people I know are college dropouts. I even wrote an article about it once. Add Edgar Blazona to that list.
