In this week's New Yorker, I read a bunch of recent tech biographies and try to figure out what's really so new about new-style corporate life.

In this week's New Yorker, I write about Harvard and a controversial new kind of online course. If everything goes as planned, "MOOCs" will change what goes on in college and grad school--not just for some people but system-wide--within the next few years. They'll affect teaching, tuitions, and the future of the academic job market.

I wrote about twentysomethings, the confessional style, a sense of eternal nowness, Iceland, and other dreamy topics for this week's New Yorker.

I wouldn't trade the mistakes, despair, and hysteria of my twenties for anything, but I am so glad to finally have hit thirty this year.

In this week's New Yorker, I wrote about TED Talks, their astonishing success, West Coast irony, and sunflowers vs. bougainvillea. Here's an accompanying post, on the New Yorker's Web site, about five TED talks you shouldn't miss.

In this week's New Yorker ("The Money Issue"), I try to figure out why San Francisco is suddenly the most powerful city in the country, why its wave of startupism might be reaching your town soon, and what that really means.

In this week's New Yorker, I profiled Annie Baker--a young playwright who's changing the way we think about theatre.

I reviewed Andrew Solomon's ambitious new book about identity, difference, and disability--and how they change the path of family life--in this week's New Yorker.

In this week's issue of The New Republic, I profiled the inimitable Peter Kaplan, one of New York's last great romantics.
