I enjoyed it even if I can't see it in 360. Is there software for the iPhone?

Story
Tagline
Journalist turned product manager turned startup CEO turned educator -- all at the same time!
Introduction

I'm a digital journalist with 18 years of experience in news and information startups and new product development. I've always been about change and am a strong believer in constant innovation and reinvention for both individuals and industries.

I suspect that future historians will see today as the golden age of digital journalism (yes, really!) and that its impact will overshadow all the turmoil in legacy media. We are living in what will one day be seen as the "good old days" of journalism and media, so enjoy it!

So how did I get from there to here?

After a year as a feature writer for The Denver Post, I joined the launch team for Washingtonpost.com in 1994 when the consumer Internet was barely a year old. While there, I produced the site's first business, technology and community sections. (This will only make sense only to a few, but I also worked on Digital Ink when it was still around).

I later spent 6 years at America Online launching and managing user-contributed content services that were used by tens of millions of people daily. Most of those were web-based, but I reluctantly once ran the AOL client-based chat service. Chat was the most embarrassing, but also most educational, product I ever worked on because it allowed me to see the beginnings of social networking before we had a name for what people were really doing through chat rooms and user profiles.

I returned to my journalism roots in 2004 at The Bakersfield Californian, where I launched a site called Bakotopia. It was the first social networking service for a local newspaper, and many other web-print niche products were launched in the ensuing years. For this work, I was awarded a Newspaper Association of America "20 Under 40" award and two Knight-Batten Awards for Innovation in Journalism. The home-grown Bakomatic platform that powered these sites was purchased by the Arizona Republic and Sacramento Bee.

In 2007, I applied for and won an $837,000 Knight News Challenge grant to run Printcasting, which was an experiment in cloud-based magazine creation. That service evolved into BookBrewer, an eBook and Print on Demand startup that is used by journalists and news organizations as well as hundreds of self-published authors.

In 2012 I was hired at Syracuse University's Newhouse school as the Peter A Horvitz Chair in Journalism Innovation. In this role I will be teaching the next generation of journalists how to meet the information needs of communities outside of traditional business models and media forms. I have no clue what those students will create, and that's both exciting and humbling, but I at least hope to be able to help them do it twice as fast as I did. I fully expect them make those of us who dare to be called innovators look old and outdated as they dazzle us with the REAL future we've all been preparing for.

Bragging rights
I've won a lot of newspaper industry innovation awards in spite of (or due to?) leaving the industry twice. Started a company. Have the honor of getting to teach the next generation of journovators. Have two beautiful daughters and am proudly part Puerto Rican. 2010 Founder Institute graduate.
