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.

I really appreciate this post, It is so important as a generation that we stop looking towards the future and start focusing on the resources that we have now and how our ability to effectively use them is benefiting us. Keeping our mind focused in the now, especially with such innovative technology and thinking is hard to do. But we must remember that we are not the ones coming up with the technology therefore we must focus on the tasks and the resources at hand. Also, the ones we are trying to reach are most likely trying to acclimate to the media outlets they use now and we should cater to that. It should always be audience first. Great point.
