Mike PerlmanHello, TechnoBuffaloers. My name is Mike Perlman. I grew up in a toxic waste site in New Jersey and spent most of my childhood being documented against my will on a JVC VHS camcorder. Needless to say, I am a prodigious nerd, despite the fact that I ride a very powerful motorcycle. As a kid, all of my toys were dissected in order to see how they were constructed. Name a Nintendo game—I've probably beaten it. All of the Super Marios, Megamans, Castlevanias—cake. Black Hole discussions arouse me, drawing blueprints for the ultimate gadget excite me, and a full-frame Nikon FX sensor makes me excited.

This may not be the first time you've encountered my preposterous presence online. For a year and a half, I covered camcorders for the largest camcorder review site in existence, Camcorderinfo.com. (I should get a ticket for having too many "camcorders" in one sentence, as I believe three is the legal limit). I wrote about digital cameras, phones, laptops, and printers as well. Yes, the gloriously soporific life of the modern day printer. And there was much rejoicing … yaaaaayyy.

I also freelanced for Gizmodo under a clandestine alias, Jack Ventura, and contributed to The Washington Post tech page. When Camcorderinfo dumped me after I went down to New Jersey to be on American Idol, I scored a job as the Digital Imaging Editor for InfoSync World in New York, all the while dressed in spandex dragon pants, lightning bolt face paint, and a Nikki Sixx wig during the interview. I'm still at InfoSync World today, so I must have done something right—thank you, Philip!

Today, you've most likely seen me on YouTube, abusing phones as a drill sergeant, reporting drunkenly from CES and PMA, or giving you the 411 on why the Fujifilm Finepix HS20 is a basket of lame compared to the Canon PowerShot SX30 IS. But if you look hard enough, you might notice a striking resemblance between me and the captain of the World's #1 Renegade Dance Troupe: Lazer of 123 Party!, which is a tale for another post, and something you might understand if you watch the show, So You Think You Can Dance.

While at TechnoBuffalo, I aim to serve you a three course meal of digital imaging knowledge, amassed from years drudged within a sea of apertures, sensors, and zooms, oh my! Whether your budget is $200 or $2,000, I want to make certain that you find the best point-and-shoot, advanced compact, Superzoom, Micro Four Thirds, or DSLR that money can buy. Trust me—I've reviewed them all.

In closing, I want to thank the TechnoBuffalo staff for having me on board. I'm beyond tickled to be joining the team, being immersed within an environment that is festooned with a Whitman's Sampler of eclectic nerds that thrive within the tech metropolis. I want to thank the readers in advance for putting up with my shenanigans, but most importantly, let's have some fun here, people—Shazam!
