Jason Cross' Summary

For more than the last decade, I have written about consumer technology. I've done a little bit of everything: I started off reviewing video games, moved to testing and analyzing PC hardware, and now spend most of my time with mobile hardware and software. I take great pride in my ability to digest hardcore technical topics, then distill it down into something the average reader can understand.

Over the years, my responsibilities have grown, too. What started as merely cranking out my own stories on a tight deadline eventually evolved into working with and managing a fleet of freelancers, then managing other staff writers, and ultimately running the day-to-day operations of major sites like TechHive.com and Greenbot.com.

I still write, of course, but now I'm involved in so much more. Holding meetings to plan content strategies. Helping mold junior writers into famous bylines. Covering live events, taking and editing photos, starring as on-screen talent in videos, podcasting, fighting with content management systems (and winning), managing social media accounts... everything involved in a modern media enterprise.
