I suppose I ought to figure out if anyone I'm connected with (encircled   with?) still uses this bad boy. Always liked it, but never hit the critical threshold among my groups. Anyway, Michelle Quinn and I dig into Silicon Valley's NSA pivot from defense to offense.

This is great.
 
I am developing a new habit: I email all the people I talked to today to thank them for their time and all the people I'll talk to tomorrow to confirm and set the stage for our conversation.  It's a pretty exciting new habit, it's really helpful!

That's a fine line.
 
Bill Burton is standing by the facts in this week's Priorities USA ad -- but Wolf Blitzer argues the impression left on the viewer is a problem. What do you think?

Great line: "Stop littering your to-dos with things you're not going to do."
 
Nobody wants to admit they're a bit lazy, but it might help you get more done.

Story
Introduction
I’m a web-focused journalist living in Washington D.C. Right now, I pay the bills by producing some mean web for POLITICO.

On the weekends, I like to tinker with websites and hatch evil plans to save the world and/or the news industry.

Technology and information are pretty awesome, but sometimes I like to throw baseballs or swing a golf clubs or play guitars or drink well-crafted beers. Not all at the same time though.
