Paul Lilly

Tech journalist by day, badass biker by night, and a 24/7 Boston sports fan, Paul Lilly epitomizes the archetype of the modern day geek. You won’t ever catch Paul wearing a pocket protector or suspenders, but you might find him cruising down the highway on two-wheels wearing an Oregon Trail t-shirt, or sticking his head in a home brewed PC while donning a do-rag or Celtics jersey. Like so many from his generation, the Commodore 64 seduced him into the titillating world of computers, and through the years, he’s courted a number of OSes and platforms from DOS on up to Windows 8. Paul covers the news beat and reviews, and is a general wiseguy who keeps the mood light. He’s also a seasoned freelance writer whose work has appeared in Maximum PC, PC World, Computer Shopper, and a number of other online and print publications.
