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-- looking forward to the full report. One thing is a mystery to me as well-- I've read about the 20% annual growth rate, but that rate is not going to come from eyeballs alone. Even Yahoo News has not been hitting 20% unique visitor growth rate annual. So it comes from "more sophisticated advertising types"-- either more intrusive visually, or better targetted.
