Chudnovsky landed at San Francisco International from his home in Moscow in 1994 with $20 in his pocket.

Twenty years later, the affable and intensely intelligent Russian emigre finds himself PayPal‘s vice president of growth, corporate strategy and special ops.

Here's his story.

“They give advice to board members as if they know, and they haven’t done shit. They’ve never been at a startup. They haven’t been through tough times.”

FTC is starting to go after mobile advertising and app companies that are not careful to avoid targeting children. If you're an app maker or mobile advertiser, watch out.

I got to spend an hour last week with computing and math genius Stephen Wolfram. Here's part 1 of that interview. Tomorrow, part 2, will be even more mind-blowing.

Writer and editor specializing in technology, science and business.
Introduction
I'm the executive editor of VentureBeat and, before that, I was the editor of various Wired blogs for four years. 

I'm also the publisher of tinywords, the world's smallest magazine.

For more, visit the Tweney homepage and Dylan's blog.

I have worked at four content startups (including my current job) and several established national magazines, covering technology, business, and science. The work I’ve enjoyed the most has involved creating new editorial products to inform and entertain readers on complicated topics of wide-reaching importance.

At VentureBeat, my job is to lead the news team, hire outstanding talent, set ambitious goals for them, and get out of their way. My own goal is to build VentureBeat into the #1 online news magazine for business and technology.
