What was your first job as a journalist?

Non paying? That would be the story I wrote for my high school newspaper about a fellow student with an art show in the campus library.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

A manual, even. One of the newspapers where I spent a summer internship was decidedly Old School.

How is social media changing news?

Faster, faster pussycat.
