About Me

  • I'm CEO of Newspeg.com, a social news-sharing platform. I've spent 20 years at the intersection of traditional and digital journalism. I've helped to invent ways to read and interact with the news and advertising on computer screens and iPads, and before that, I wrote news stories on typewriters and six-ply paper. I co-founded WashingtonPost.com and hyperlocal pioneers Backfence.com and GrowthSpur; served as editor of Philly.com; taught media entrepreneurship at the University of Maryland; and have done product-development and strategy consulting for all sorts of media and Internet companies.

Mark Potts writes "I don't want PostPoints", but he does not explain why. Maybe it's because he does not understand how to play this "tawdry" little game to his advantage. I'm on course to earn over $500/year from PostPoints. My subscription to the Post costs $187 per year, so my wallet is over $300 fatter thanks to PostPoints. What's not to like?
