Richard Romano, Managing Editor of Going Green
WhatTheyThink | Going Green’s Managing Editor, Richard Romano, is a writer and analyst for the graphic communications industry and frequently contributes feature articles, news stories, and special research reports to WhatTheyThink, the leading news and information portal for the graphic communications industry. Romano is a former writer and senior analyst for The Industry Measure (formerly TrendWatch Graphic Arts). He is the co-author, with WhatTheyThink’s Dr. Joe Webb, of Disrupting the Future: Uncommon Wisdom for Navigating Print’s Challenging Marketplace. Romano and Webb are currently wrestling with their next book.
He is also the writer/analyst for WhatTheyThink’s annual Printing Goes Green special report.
Romano is the former executive editor of the short-lived CrossMedia magazine (2001), and had been either a contributing, senior, or, eventually, managing editor (1995–2001) for Micro Publishing News, a now-defunct newsmonthly for electronic designers and print buyers, and its then-sister and equally defunct publication Digital Imaging, for which he had reviewed graphics hardware and software and wrote regular features and news stories on various graphic arts technologies.
Romano is also the author, co-author, or editor of a half dozen books on the subjects of graphic arts hardware and software, one of which has the distinction of having received an Amazon.com review from a cat.
He has vague recollections of having graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications in 1989. He has no advanced degrees, but does often run a temperature.
A former resident of such disparate places as Salem, NH, New York, NY, and Los Angeles, CA, he now lives in Saratoga Springs, NY.
