Wired — Broadband Cowboy
My original pitch to Wired bordered on bizarre: a self-taught wireless technology guru, an impoverished Native American tribe, legal celebrity Lawrence Lessig, and the Royal Family of Tonga — all in the same story. But the story proved provocative, and relevant to the mounting debate about who truly owns the airwaves, and how best to share the limited wireless spectrum. Insider info: I awoke at Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation on 9/11. In the following days, when planes were grounded, the library staff at the nearby University of North Dakota in Minot provided a welcoming refuge while I wrote this piece.   See article

Outside — Being Beluga
I've occasionally strayed from technology to cover unusual topics. In this example, I’m pretty sure I was the first person to cavort with beluga whales in near-freezing seawaters and write about it for a major publication. Insider info: Out of nowhere, a boat with a film crew pulled up alongside my Zodiac. First, the director interviewed me. Then, the cameraman (rather than freeze his own derrière) asked me to shoot his underwater beluga segments. My talking head, and my first-time camerawork, has since aired frequently on the Discovery Channel.    See article
