Electronic Industry Veteran Tech Journalist Exits Extension Media

John Blyler, Chief Content Officer, Seeks to Combine Online Media, University Teaching and Engineering Experiences

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Jul 8, 2014) - After 10 years as VP, Chief Content Officer at Extension Media, John Blyler is leaving to pursue other endeavors. While not fully disclosing his plans until the end of August, Blyler will remain involved in the world of semiconductors, systems hardware-software engineering and advanced technologies.

Blyler is a sponsored writer for the ARM® (NASDAQ: ARMH) Connected (Software) Community and on the IP Insider blog. He is the author of several technical books for Elsevier, IEEE/Wiley and SAE. Blyler remains an affiliate professor of graduate-level systems engineering at Portland State University and an established public speaker on technology and science.

"As the industry continues to rapidly evolve, so must the ways in which we engage and add value," said Blyler. "My background in engineering physics, as a journalist and at the university allows me to connect with a variety of professionals and companies in valuable ways. In turn, this network and experience has convinced me to focus on larger electronics systems, both in a hardware-software sense but also the often-difficult collaboration between cross-disciplinary systems. As you might imagine, these interface areas are where the biggest gaps in our tools and process flows occur. I want to be a part of the larger effort to solve these problems -- through editorial coverage, unique online distribution strategies, educational course-seminar offerings and engineering engagements."

Specific details about new media and technical educational services will be disclosed in late August. To review some of Blyler's past work, please visit He can be reached at or on Twitter or LinkedIn.
