President and Founder, Living in Digital Times
Robin Raskin has spent longer than she cares to remember exploring what it means to be living in digital times. An author, editor, events and conferences creator, magazine publisher, blogger, TV and radio personality, and consultant, Raskin says she’s never met a media she doesn’t like, and is happiest when she’s writing about technology’s second citizens: kids, seniors and women.
Raskin is the former editor of PC Magazine and Editor in Chief of FamilyPC. She’s been a columnist for USA Today Online and Yahoo! and has authored 6 books about parenting in the digital age and one book as the parent of college graduates called The Parents’ Guide to College Life. For the past five years, Raskin partnered with the Consumer Electronics Association, where she produces a number of different lifestyle events including Living in Digital Times, HigherEd Tech, KidsatPlay, MommyTech, Silvers Summit, Digital Health, Sports and Fitness Tech, Last Gadget Standing, Mobile Apps Showdown, and FashionWare. Each mixes entertainment, education and great technologies to create some of the most popular forums at CES. Raskin lives in NYC and the Hudson Valley, with her husband, her three drop in now and then children, and closets full of obsolete technology.
