- A Frank interview, 1500 words of excerpts from an interview Annalee Newitz and I conducted with Tom Frank in the December 6th Bay Guardian. A very Frank interview, complete 9000 word transcript of the interview.

I also did research and wrote a sidebar (which isn't online) for What About E-Reading? by Rob Brookman.
- INTERVIEW: Wagner, Public Broadcasting, and Jon Else, director of "Sing Faster: The Stagehand's
Ring Cycle" for IndieWire (6-9-99) [Sing Faster was broadcast on September 27th, 1999 on the PBS series, Independent Lens. ]

- You're welcome to Bitch - MediaFile 1997

- Activists Put the Public in Public TV Extra! December 1992, FAIR's magazine.
- I wrote a Netsurf item on This Modern World (when someone else was maintaining it) in Wired 3.01 (it is the sixth item down)
- Basement Books Netsurf item in Wired 2.10 (the third item down). Basement Full of Books (like all of things I wrote about for Netsurf) has moved. It was started by Vonda McIntyre (who won the 1997 Nebula award).
- Netsurf items on Noam Chomsky and Aaron Barnhart's Late Show News in Wired 2.12 (the third from last item and the last one).
- No room at the bin - an interview with me in Salon on my experiences selling software at Virgin Megastore. I actually wanted Scott to use my name, but it was a good thing he didn't. A Virgin employee in LA was fired for talking to Multimedia Retailer News. I also talked to the reporter (she quoted me even though I told her to interview my boss) and when I was brought in to be reprimanded, I thought they had discovered this piece. Luckily, my boss supported me since I didn't agree to be quoted on the record.
I contribute regularly to TVBarn. I have a weblog,
Tiger Beat (older entries), which I don't
update as often as I should. I also contributed briefly to Rewired: Blog of a Strained Net. I wrote most of sfblog, the Bay Guardian's weblog when I was working there.
I also have three photo/moblogs, one personal (though it had a lot of political stuff early on)
Tigerbeat, another political, and
a third on film. More photos on flickr.
Here is a list (the links don't currently work) of some of the items I've written for Justin Hall's zine, bud.com.
I wrote and edited weekly TV Picks for the Bay Guardian from August 2000 through May 2001. Here are some which remain online:
