I've covered science, technology, the environment and politics for outlets including CNET, PC World, BYTE, Wired, AOL and NPR. I was managing editor of Crowdsourcing.org, I've written e-books on Android and Alaska and reported from South by Southwest, Ecuador's nascent Silicon Valley and countless places in between. I began covering Silicon Valley for the now defunct Business 2.0 Magazine in 2000, but when the dot-com bubble burst, I found myself manning a public radio station in the Alaskan Bush for three years. Upon returning to the lower 48, I covered politics, energy and the environment as a freelancer for National Public Radio programs and spent time as an online editor for AOL and Comcast. For the past 4 years, I’ve returned to focusing on the world of technology. I live in Taos, New Mexico where I’m also a co-founder of an Expeditionary Learning charter school in a nearby rural community.
I cover science and innovation and products and policies they create.
