Ozy is dope. I’m loving the vibe of this new news site, from content to design. And it helps that my good buddy Eustacio Humphrey is pulling some of the marionette strings. Great to be taking orders from him again (my former boss at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer).
Things went a little off script after Mr. Gates left the stage at the Boao Forum the other day.

Great to work with Photography Director Anna Dickson and writer Saki Knafo.
