Hi there! I'm a writer living in San Francisco. I moved here in 2010 to cover technology for the business desk of the San Francisco Chronicle, and later became a senior writer at CNET. In 2013 I joined The Verge, where I am a senior editor leading our coverage of Silicon Valley. CNewton.org is my personal blog, and I use it as a kind of rolling portfolio of the more substantive pieces I write.

Since 2008 I've kept a Tumblr about music, culture and criticism, reflecting my obsession with indie rock. These days, it's mostly reblogged GIFs — you can follow along over at Crumbler.

Other places to follow my work:

Facebook. Poke me!
Instagram. Now with handsome Web view!
Twitter. Nice to tweet you!
Pocket. What I'm reading!
Spotify. Making playlists!
Periscope. Hosting community meetings. Hello to Brazil.

And you can add me on Snapchat under the name crumbler or by snapping my ghost:
