About Me

  • I've spent more than 25 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 and startups.

I heartily agree with you about defending local coverage (ah "bowling alone") to keep an informed, involved citizenry.... Such coverage creates and maintains conversational threads. This is ever more important as Americans belong to fewer organizations.

it's not just to be informed to vote but having that common language of events for caring and connection.

I'll bet the 50+ crowd will get increasingly involved as readers and writers of that coverage.
