Kevin McLaughlin


Kevin joined The Information in 2016 after 11 years covering enterprise technology and cloud computing at CRN, a technology trade industry publication. He was first to report on Apple signing up with Google as a cloud customer, IBM selling its x86 server business to Lenovo, and VMware’s CEO change in 2012. Previously, he was a technical writer for France Telecom’s R&D division and a reporter at Business 2.0, a magazine that covered the rise (and fall) of the first dot-com era. In the 1990s, he studied and worked abroad in China and Thailand, starting his career at The Bangkok Post, an English language daily newspaper. There, he interviewed Adam Yauch, Phil Collins, Kenny Rogers, Joan Jett, and other visiting musicians and public figures. Kevin attended Colgate University and lives with his wife and son in Berkeley, Calif. You can reach him at
