Yesterday, CNBC had Twitter CEO Dick Costolo on air to answer questions submitted via #AskCostolo.

Then, suddenly, the Q&A was over, without questions from #AskCostolo being addressed in any meaningful way, despite thousands […]
Woohoo! Nice to see my name in Newsweek Japan: レーンナ・フェーダー My Google Street Art story made it into the print mag. This is particularly exciting to me because I studied Japanese in school elementary/middle school (then switched to French in high school, then Russian in college). You can read it in English here.
WNYC put me on their list of NYC instagrammers to follow this summer, woohoo! We love the New York City Instagram community, and regularly feature our favorite “Instagram of the day.” Here are a few photographers that regularly catch our eye; we’re looking forward to seeing what parts of the city they capture this summer.

My latest piece for WIRED Design is up. Quick Response (QR) codes, those little black-and-white boxes of pixels that encode links and information, are popping up everywhere these days. Taking advantage of the codes’ ability to capture and obscure data, Los Angeles-based Chilean artist Guillermo Bert has found another creative use of QR technology — […]
Finally found the right publication for a story I’ve been carrying around for about about a year now.
