Dan Fost is a veteran journalist who writes on a freelance basis for San Francisco magazine, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, and other publications. As a staff writer at the San Francisco Chronicle, he covered technology and media, with a front row seat at the rise and fall of the dotcoms, as well as their resurrection in the form of Web 2.0. But don’t let the technology specialty fool you: Dan is a versatile generalist who has covered sports, social ventures, the environment, education, police and politics.
He is a passionate baseball fan and the author of the book, “Giants Past and Present,” published in Spring 2010 by MVP Books. Dan hit the lecture circuit in support of his book, giving talks throughout the 2010 season at bookstores, libraries, the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center, the City Club of San Francisco and (yes, there is such as thing) the New York Baseball Giants Nostalgia Society.
Dan is a native of New Jersey, a graduate of Boston University, and is married with one child (who is also an avid fan and Little League player). He loves reading, writing, cooking, baseball, and spending time outdoors, among other things. He lives in Marin County, California.
