Contributing Editor
As a “classically trained” print journalist, Jason shares a lot in common with the ill-fated dodo. Unlike the dodo, however, Jason can use the Interwebs, so the guy’s at least got a shot at escaping the extinction that threatens his beloved newspaper industry. Thanks to his reporting background, Jason has covered a range of folks from President Obama and Japanese ministry officials to software geeks and customers milling about his local Apple Store. His work has also taken him around the world, causing an even greater dependence on his gadgets to keep him sane during those excruciating 10-hour flights. An avid gamer since the days of Atari and Nintendo’s Game & Watch. Jason's writing has appeared in such national publications as Glamour Magazine and USA Today.
