I'm a New York-based writer, editor and multimedia journalist. I cover on gender, pop culture, social issues & trends for the New York Times, The Atlantic, Cosmopolitan & Time.com, where I'm a columnist. I also edit special projects for Sheryl Sandberg's women's foundation, Lean In. Past Lives: Executive Editor of TUMBLR, Senior Editor at NEWSWEEK.
As a former Post guy, this is so depressing. This is where Watergate became a thing. I mean, this building is two blocks away from the White House and moving it away from there means it’s not going to have that kind of significance anymore. The worst possible thing the Post could do right now is move to Arlington. It’s an old building and getting around it was like a maze, but it has its charms.
Insert the saddest emoticon ever. Time Magazine/TimeInc is looking into the same thing of its midtown Manhattan HQ.
Reposted from the @newyorkermag’s Instagram feed, which is using iPhone photographers like @ruddyroye and @BenLowy to cover the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy on the ground. As an editor, from an almost-defunct print publication (Newsweek) now at a new media company (Tumblr), it’s encouraging to see legacy brands like the New Yorker — and TIME, which is running one of Lowy’s iphone images of Sandy on its cover this week — embracing new journalistic models.
UPDATE: Lowy will be documenting the recovery efforts for Tumblr over the coming week. Tune into Storyboard for more.
The original photo that started the ‘Texts from Hillary’ meme was taken on October 18, 2011 by Diana Walker at the start of a week long trip through the middle east. In the photo Hillary Clinton checks her PDA, in her sunglasses, upon departure in a military plane from Malta, bound for Tripoli.
