    Writer/Editor/Analyst, 2009 - present
    Since 2009, I've covered news and analyses about social, digital and technology for Mashable. I created Mashable Entertainment and was its founding editor, where my focus was on the intersection between tech and entertainment before shifting my focus back to tech in my current role as senior tech analyst. I'm very focused on mobile, software and web development, social TV and the intersection between technology and media.

    I wrote news posts and did interviews covering the film industry for AMC Theaters' Script-to-Screen blog from its founding in 2009 until October 2010.
  • Weblogs, Inc.
    Blogger, TUAW, Download Squad, Stylelist, 2007 - 2009
    At Weblogs Inc., I was the deputy editor of Download Squad (RIP), TUAW and Stylelist. Here I did everything from write about the latest web browser or Mac app to the coolest tech fashion accessories.

And with this, Google+ basically goes away. I know the diehards and +Mike Elgan will disagree with me, but come on guys, this is the end.

+Stuart O'Neill yes I moved to Diaspora during the #nymwars period of G+. Have made great friends there.... but its def a social network at Diaspora and not for business. FOSS community run and owned. G+ is the best commercial social networking platform however. Ello was/is severely lacking, minds.com very broken.

Speaking of the #Pacquiao-Mayweather fight, I wrote an op-ed explaining my first-person experience pirating the fight on #Periscope.

TL;DR, I think there was a lot more to this than just piracy. The experiential component was huge.
Like millions of others, I watched the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight in someone else's living room. Only I did it online.

So I rarely post about my podcast stuff on Google+ but I think this one is really core for the G+ audience. I was on +Bad Voltage with +Jono Bacon, +Bryan Lunduke, +Jeremy Garcia  and +Stuart Langridge. I had a total blast.

Because it's a Linux podcast (or at least, is dominated by Linux people), we talked about Microsoft.

Because this is what I do. My Apple fan-girling selfI goes on OSS podcasts to talk about Microsoft.

Hilarious. I LOVE +Bad Voltage and was totally psyched to be on the show. So thanks for having me guys!

Also be sure to check-out the Bad Voltage community page: https://plus.google.com/communities/112243430378992034792

My exhaustive review of the new MacBook. This is the future! 
Mashable
The new MacBook is thin, light and has an amazing display. It's the future of laptops.

Anyone who is naive enough to think this recent news (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2015/07/everything-in-its-right-place.html) is good for Google+ needs a reality check: This is the end.

Here is exactly what is going to happen to Google+ -- and I say this as someone who has watched many a community die/service get sunset:

1. The promised "focus" on the product will never materialize. Instead, staffers who were focused on parts of Google+ will continue to get moved to other projects. 
2. New features are not going to come. In fact, it's going to take even longer for bugs to get fixed, again, because no one is actually working on it.
3. Google will slowly start to retire the brand. They'll start by slowing or shutting down signups. 
4. The product will be sunset and users will be encouraged to backup their data using Google Takeout.

It's over guys. You can either accept reality now or continue to use a service that, thanks to its official de-coupling -- is now seen as truly non-essential to Google. Google will let it exist for only so long, but at a certain point, they will retire it. Google Reader died. This will too.

You guys said you wanted to be alerted to more of my podcast news, so here we go! I do two audio podcasts each week, in addition to co-hosting TechNewsToday on +TWiT  on Fridays.

Those shows are Overtired (http://esn.fm/overtired) and Rocket (http://relay.fm/rocket).

This week, here are the latest episodes: The first is from Overtired, where +Brett Terpstra and I interviewed Matt and Viviana from the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan museum. We also talked about Citizenfour and Brett's newest app. http://www.esn.fm/overtired/37

And Today, the latest episode of Rocket is out. Brianna and Simone and I talked about Carly Fiorina (and why I think she set women in business back a generation because of her poor performance at HP), Periscoping the MayPac fight and I attempted to moderate a debate between Simone and Bri over +The Avengers 2 Age Of Ultron.

It's a blast. http://www.relay.fm/rocket/17

As someone who recently bought the Clueless soundtrack on vinyl, I heartily approve this amazing take on the best teen movie of the last 20 years, as well as every teen movie it helped kick-off.

#Clueles  forever.

Great perspective
 
Was streaming Mayweather-Pacquiao on Periscope illegal? Definitely.
Was Twitter's CEO nuts to praise it? Yes.
Did it really hurt the fight? No.

This really messes with the financial underpinnings of all video that is not advertising supported.  The flurry of lawsuits can't be too far behind.

Dear Google Hangouts team. We love you but shit like what is happening today (where 90% of our team can't connect to a Hangout) is making me go Hulk with rage.

+Jeff Stevens I understand, and see your point - I guess if Hangouts needs that level of support, then the platform in real trouble..
