What was your first job as a journalist?

I worked as an intern at the Fiji Sun. First paid job was as a proofreader for the Sunday Observer in New Delhi, India.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes, I learned to type on a typewriter when I was 11. My mom thought it was a handy skill to acquire and she was right!

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Kermit the Frog.

5 social media lessons from Roger Ebert, @EbertChicago — It's appropriate that I learned on Twitter of the passing of Roger Ebert -- not only because that's the place I get most of my breaking news, but also because Ebert helped me understand the power of social media and helped me teach it to others.

Italia Innovation Program's Day in Venice — July 1, 2015: Italia Innovation Program's #BackToItaly team spent a day working and playing in Venice.

5 lessons from a lost iPhone — For years, I've been doing the Gadget Boy dance. It's what you do when you get out of a taxi in NYC, tapping various parts of your clothing to make sure you have your gadgets, keys, wallet, etc., with you. On Sunday, as I exited a cab, I forgot to do the dance and left my iPhone 4S behind.

Sree tips - Columbia Journalism Review — What's the etiquette about including your company name in your Twitter handle? Some news organizations force, or strongly encourage, employees to include a company identifier in their Twitter handles (if Wile E. Coyote were a journalist, his handle might be @WileeAcmeNews). My policy: If they don't force you to do this, don't do it on your own.
