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.

Funny - that apocryphal John Wanamaker (1838-1922) quote is attributed to Lord Lever (1851-1925) in the UK.

All true, but here's the problem for local, particularly in retail and entertainment: A click is usually the wrong metric of engagement.
