Chris O'Brien

Chris O’Brien is a technology reporter who covers Apple and Silicon Valley. He joined the Los Angeles Times in 2012 and has covered Silicon Valley since 1999, both as a reporter and a columnist. He’s lived through the dot-com boom and bust, and still has a talking Sock Puppet to prove it. He’s a native of Kansas and a graduate of Duke University who scoffs at Pac-10 “basketball.” He’s also a better bowler than you are.
