What was your first job as a journalist?
As a freelancer, I wrote about trade finance. My first full-time gig was as assistant editor for a DC computer newspaper.
How is social media changing news?
It's an ongoing open conversation with sources and readers. It creates transparency.
How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?
We don't take pitched stories very often. I prefer PR people understand Ars before wildly pitching, or I may never have time to respond.
