In November of 2009, I was invited to speak at an Aspen Institute conference on the national innovation agenda in Washington DC. The moderator was John Meecham, editor of Newsweek and I was paired up with Sire Harold Evans as a conversational partner up on stage. Out of that event grew a friendship, and out of that friendship grew an involvement with the innovation channel of the Daily Beast.
Although I am not one who needs more career diversification, I have found the role of “journalist” as contributing editor to the Beast’s innovation channel to involve be very satisfying work.
