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.

Thanks for the recognition of our man Barry. The Post and its readers are incredibly fortunate to have him nurturing and informing our Nats' fledgling fan base -- of whom, it should be noted, a notable proportion are discerning and demanding fans already.

I've met Barry once, at a book signing. He's as earnest and level-headed as he sounds in the paper and in cyberspace. He is indeed a model for responsible, involved, dispassionate and even-tempered sports reporting.

We're damned lucky to have Barry, and to have folks like you around to call out his good efforts.
