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.

I also suspect Walter Cronkite won't have a funeral at the Staples Center -- though he had quite a bit more impact on our country than that other guy.

And now that he's gone, there's some evidence (http://www.timepolls.com/hppolls/archive/poll_results_417.html) that America's most-trusted "newscaster" is Jon Stewart.

Which says a lot about the state of TV journalism in this country.
