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.

Mark, Congratulations!!! Your leadership has made newspeg a reality!!!

Newpeg i.e News curation in a visual way by trusted experts and friends is the only way to consume news, especially when you can get news from gazillions of sources (original and regurgitated).
