Here's my take on what the surprise defeat of the farm bill means for grassroots activists: You can make a difference in Washington.

Today in +The Atlantic I write about the +MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. Hanging out with sports nerds to talk about data and marketing turned out to be an eye-opening experience.

Introduction

I'm a journalist and blogger in charge of The Heritage Foundation's digital media department and investigative reporting unit. It's my job to develop stories and use technology to communicate the power of policy ideas -- most prominently through Heritage's online outlets and a weekly meeting I co-founded called the Bloggers Briefing.

I oversee a team responsible for promoting Heritage content on more than a dozen digital platforms -- from Facebook and Twitter to iPad and YouTube. I'm also passionate about promoting investigative journalism and government transparency. In 2012, I co-founded the Future of Journalism Summit and Breitbart Awards with the Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity.

I joined Heritage in 2007 after five years as a reporter and editor in Washington. While reporting for Cybercast News Service, I was the first journalist to challenge the authenticity of documents used by CBS News to question President George W. Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard.

I'm currently a member of the Broadcasting Board of Governors Commission on Innovation and serve on the board of visitors for the Institute on Political Journalism. I recently finished serving for six years on Ithaca College's Alumni Association Advisory Board of Directors.
