What was your first job as a journalist?

I was hired when I was 16 to write op-eds and draw political cartoons for the daily newspaper in my hometown.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes - many years ago. I'm also intrigued by the tricked-out ones that have iPad hookups.

How is social media changing news?

The Boston bombings proved that citizen journalists are providing key insights into what's happening in the world in real time.
