I know, this thing has basically devolved into a self-glorifying archive of my occasional media appearances. So I was on Talk of the Nation yesterday talking about the Prisoners of YouTube. Aren't I awesome? Listen here.
I'm a reporter for Gawker. Before that I was a senior writer at Radar Magazine and covered television for the Chicago Tribune. I used to "teach" magazine writing at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. I make noise with my brother Matt in an infrequently convened band called Cooksie.
