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.

Thanks for the kind words, Mark, and for continuing your important contributions to this discussion. I'm still using some apps you showed Mimi and me in Chicago.

Though mobile phone is more accessible and portable than computer, I don’t think mobile news and information are where the action is going to be over the next few years unless there are great improvements on its applications and text-messaging service. I gave up reading news on my mobile phone after just trying it for two days. It is not convenient to browse long information on such small device.
