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 mention, Mark. Your insight here has been both a help and an inspiration. I'm discovering the truth of what others have said, though: innovation while retrenching is tough slogging. Contraction, rather than helping energize efforts to change and leap ahead, seems to enervate. I'm spend more of my time than I should simply trying to keep pace.
