What was your first job as a journalist?
I worked with Isaac Asimov on a book about real robots. I am co-author of our book, Robots: Machines in Man's Image (Harmony, 1985).
Have you ever used a typewriter?
Yes, in grad school. A Hermes Rocket, the first portable stream-lined typewriter. I named by first standard poodle after it.
How is social media changing news?
It is altering how journalists find stories and sources, how the public chooses what to pay attention to, and promotes interactivity.
