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.

"Where they once filled a role as weekly digests and analysts of the news, Time, Newsweek and U.S. News and World Report now look like total anachronisms."

And yet The Week, which is a pure digest, is doing quite nicely. And not too many down-turned heads at the Economist.

Charles Barthold

I agree with the general point of view. I have to say that Time is doing the best of the three. Each week they have plenty of interesting articles and points of view I have not seen before. I am not sure if that is translating to success on the business side but it's a good editorial product. The Economist is the other exception. And they follow the same path Times seems to be taking -- interesting, unique content.
