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.

As a trainee journalist, I am being drilled constantly on the importance of non-linear forms of journalism as a way to capture out target audience.
The technological advances have forced news corporations to adapt their newsbroadcasts to enable "consume" their news wherever and whenever they want to. RSS feeds, iPhone apps and the ability to interact with the news producers have all become part of the tools journalists use on a day to day basis.
With so many different news stations out there, we have to pro-actively seek out our audiences.
