Gillmor previously worked with leading musical artists including Paul Butterfield, David Sanborn, and members of The Band after an early career as a record producer and filmmaker with Columbia Records’ Firesign Theatre. As personal computers emerged in video and music production tools, Gillmor started contributing to various publications, most notably Byte Magazine, where he was a lead reviewer of development and collaborative platform systems including Visual Basic, Lotus Notes, Microsoft Office, and Windows NT.

As blogging emerged, he wrote the first blogs for Ziff Davis Media, CMP’s CRN, and CNet’s ZDNet, where he remains a contributing editor. A podcasting pioneer, he developed and hosted the seminal Gillmor Gang podcast with industry notables including Jon Udell, [Dan Farber](http://www.crunchbase.com/person/Dan-Farber), [Mike Arrington](http://www.crunchbase.com/person/michael-arrington), [Jason Calacanis](http://www.crunchbase.com/person/Jason-Calacanis), [Michael Vizard](http://www.crunchbase.com/person/michael-vizard), [Doc Searls](http://www.crunchbase.com/person/doc-searls) and others as regulars.
