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.

Crisis. OMG, we are in a crisis? I thought those two years of declining revenues, declining advertising, and declining circulation were just a perverse blip. Well, things will go back to normal if we can only bridge this economic recession. After all, it was the economy that brought this on. So advertising will return, circulation will come back, and the revenues will be on the up-escalator once again. Let's have API call more of these closed-door, all-expenses paid conferences so we can discuss how really great the business used to be, and will be in the future.
