He has reported for The Economist, Wired, The New York Times, Deutsche Welle English, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Public Radio International, National Public Radio, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and many others. His first book,The Internet of Elsewhere – about the history and effects of the Internet on different countries around the world, including Senegal, Iran, Estonia and South Korea – was published by Rutgers University Press in April 2011.

He has a B.A. in Political Economy from the University of California, Berkeley and a M.S. from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
