Celebrating Black History in Technology

by Darryl Taft
In commemoration of Black History Month in February, eWEEK introduces some of the most prominent black executives and technologists in the IT industry. These men and women have made names for themselves in some of the world's largest IT companies, including IBM, Microsoft, Xerox and Google. In addition to some of the African-Americans who have made serious contributions at big-name IT companies, eWEEK has also taken some time to consider black entrepreneurs who have started smaller businesses and who have paved the way to developing new types of technology.
Darryl K. Taft covers the development tools and developer-related issues beat from his office in Baltimore. He has more than 10 years of experience in the business and is always looking for the next scoop. Taft is a member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and was named 'one of the most active middleware reporters in the world' by The Middleware Co. He also has his own card in the 'Who's Who in Enterprise Java' deck.
