About

"The books I read, and the critical thinking skills I learned, have helped me in every stage of my career as a journalist. I also spent several years writing a book—"The Hawk and the Dove: Paul Nitze, George Kennan, and the History of the Cold War"—that tied directly to what I learned as an undergraduate."

"I'm the editor of Wired, which means I have to help figure out how journalism can help our readers understand the ways the world is changing. I'm also a contributor for CBS News, where I talk about technology and politics."
