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.

You think there's something to this Internet thing?

Seriously -- I still pull my hair out when I see letters to newspapers/magazines with a "via the Internet" endline. Really? Do they label a letter when it's delivered by hand, fax or mail? Makes the editors look like they've just discovered email. Actually, maybe they have.
