Eric joined CNET in 1997 as a lab technician after a short stint as video game tester. He studied computer science for a few years while employed at CNET, but after realizing he was a better writer than programmer, he began working as full-time editor in 2007. Luckily, juggling both fields was just what CNET needed when they brought Eric on to manage content.
