I write about technology, design, business, marketing, the arts, work, and other subjects. (For more about me please go here.)DO

From 2013 to 2018 I wrote the Workologist column for The New York Times. From 2012 to 2016, I contributed regularly to Design Observer. From 2013 to early 2015, I was a columnist for Yahoo News and Yahoo Tech. From 2004 – 2012, I was a contributing writer to The New York Times Magazine, most notably writing the weekly Consumed column. Before that, I was a columnist for Slate.

All along, I have also done other work here and there for a variety of outlets. Selected examples below, in reverse chronological order. (I also post newer stuff all the time on Facebook and Twitter.)

[NOTE: Since July, 2017 I have been focused on a book project, so there hasn’t been much updating here.]
