Online Editor, 2006–2008

My affiliation with Vanity Fair began in 2005, when someone showed Graydon Carter the magazine mashups I’d been doing on my blog, Panopticist, and he approached me to contribute similar stuff to the magazine. In 2006, Graydon tapped me to become the magazine’s first full-time online editor, a position with broad responsibility for all aspects of VF.com. Over the course of two years, I led a major site redesign; conceived and produced videos, slideshows, blogs, and other web-only content; edited original work by James Wolcott, Gay Talese, Madonna, and other notable contributors; and participated in the cloak-and-dagger schemes during the runup to the big Suri Cruise reveal. I left staff in 2008 and became a contributing editor, a role I held until 2012.
