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.

Hi Mark,
I was one of the students in the American University class you talked to a couple of weeks ago. Thought you might be interested in an alternative viewpoint to the one Gates has expressed. This is from a transcript of a Charlie Rose interview with Anthony O'Reilly. O'Reilly is the former CEO of Heinz, now an international financier. I've posted it on yet another blog -- one by the AU class you addressed. Here's the url: http://scan-n-land.blogspot.com/
