I don't understand a lot of stuff. But your Twitter account is a really great source to find out what's happening and for good jokes. I won't ask you a question about your Twitter account, though, because that sounds unbearable. I'll ask a slightly less unbearable question -- what do you think journalism will look like in 5 years?
Thank you for not asking about my Twitter account. I hope we still have journalism in some form in five years. Kidding, but only sort of. The abrupt closure of Gothamist/DNAinfo last week filled me with despair but also made me curiously hopeful that blogs might have a renaissance as local news outlets wither. There's also going to be lots of consolidation, broadly speaking; all these media startups with crazy-high valuations are probably going to get bought by bigger media companies or just die off when they burn through their funding. I hope some "benevolent" (please imagine me doing the biggest air quotes possible here) billionaires buy up media properties a la Jeff Bezos and let them publish what they want without interference.
What have you worked on in 2017 that you're most proud of?
Pretty much everything on Vanity Fair's Hive tech vertical.
What can people expect from your reading?
A meandering critique of late capitalism. Also, hot dogs.
