My Lead Story on New York Magazine Website

Is it legal not to pay 400+ volunteers who staff New York’s Fashion Week? This story just fell into my lap, complete with multiple document leaks. http://nymag.com/thecut/2015/02/what-its-like-to-be-an-unpaid-worker-at-nyfw.html

My New Column in Huffington Post today

This one start’s out fast and light – about lousy headline writing – and gets a bit dense with trademark and a corporate conflict. Let me know what you think.

Marc Andreessen re-tweeted me…

Marc Andreessen re-tweeted my piece about social journalism in the NY Observer;  Tim O’Reilly and Nick Bilton favorites.  The Op Ed describes old media vs. new media perspective on social content.  http://observer.com/2014/03/why-michael-wolff-is-wrong/

I have to admit, I like rejoining the media-world conversation. Hard-core technology talk is not as much fun.
