I write about technology, design, business, marketing, the arts, work, and other subjects. (More here.)DO

My Workologist column appears in The New York Times Sunday Business section every other week.

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: As of July, 2017 I’m focused on a book project, probably through the end of the year at least, so it’s unlikely much new will appear below before 2018. The Workologist column, however, will continue, and I will update that page of this site at regular intervals.]
