As managing editor of The Poynter Institute’s website, Poynter.org, I report on the media news industry, edit the site’s How To section, and moderate the site's live chats. I also help handle the site's social media efforts, and teach social media sessions on the side. I like to unpack media trends, and I’m especially interested in how technology is changing the way we tell stories. Other topics I like to cover include: social media, new tools for longform journalism, diversity in the media, women in technology, corrections, commenting on news sites, and writing tips and techniques. I came to Poynter in June 2007 for the institute’s summer fellowship for young journalists and then stayed on for a year-long fellowship before being hired full-time in November 2008. I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News, The Tampa Bay Times, The Boston Globe and several other newspapers in Massachusetts. I’m currently working on a memoir, which is coming along slowly but surely.

The new “100 Percent Men” Tumblr highlights “corners of the world where women have yet to tread" and aims to "shine a light" on the issue. New Republic reporter Lydia DePillis created the Tumblr earlier this month to show the gender disparity among higher-ups at news organizations, political groups, tech companies and more.
“[I] just wanted a place to collect the 100% men instances I'd noticed in a central place, and Tumblr’s generally acknowledged as the best platform to do that,” she told Poynter.

"Al was many things — a journalist, a leader, a serial entrepreneur, and a pioneer in advancing opportunities for women and minorities. But above all, he was an innovator with a unique sense of the public taste. ... I will miss his counsel, and I will miss the man. But as with all great people, what Al built will live on."(more...)

"Representing a diversity of authors and books is extremely important at the Book Review, and it will continue to be. And by diversity, I mean variety in every way: a diversity of author backgrounds and ideologies and arguments, a diversity of genre, a diversity of subject matter. While the VIDA numbers were indeed dismal overall, I was pleased to see that the Book Review has had a far better record than many other publications."She didn't elaborate on how she would help diversify the section.
