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.

Sure enough, I stopped using the NYT "Editors' Choice" app immediately in favor of the Web site, and in fact find myself using nytimes.com *more* on the iPad than I ever did on the desktop....I think it's a use case thing, the ability to take a spin through tomorrow's paper at midnight in bed.

When asked by colleagues, like the dean of Medill, what apps showcase the promise of tablets the best right now, I take them straight to AtBat 2010. I'll check out some of your other recommendations.

Thanks for the thoughtful piece. O
