A well-thrown Hail Mary. Will it be caught?

I am a freelance journalist. My main gigs these days are for Fast Company, where I’m a contributing writer (and run an interview series), and MIT Technology Review, where I’m a contributing editor (and run this gadget-focused blog).
I’ve written for a bunch of magazines and websites, including Smithsonian, Slate, Salon, Wired, The Wall Street Journal, The San Francisco Chronicle, and The Paris Review. I write on a range of topics, but my focus is technology and business.
This one time, I wrote a series of articles about beef jerky.
