The Week is an awesome magazine. I've known these guys since its founding and have had multiple sessions, working with the editorial team, the marketing team, and the web team. But where it's the most fun is writing for their blog. It's not much money but damn, it's good exposure: A piece I wrote on Evolution was seen more than a million times, and received more than a hundred thousand shares on Facebook. Here are a few of the pieces I've written.
Article: Why Donald Trump would only be our 6th worst president
A fun look at our favorite buffoon candidate. Read the article here.
Article: Attention, celebrities: This is how you apologize
A deep dive into the all-too-common phenomenon of the insincere celebrity apology. Read the article here.
Article: Your smartphone is really stupid
You think your phone is smart now? Imagine what it could really do, if our lazy scientists would get off their asses. Read the article here.
Article: This is how we're going to land a spaceship on a freaking comet
It's really quite remarkable, and makes the moon landing look like a walk in the park. Read the article here.
Article: Why You Should Stop Believing in Evolution
This was a piece that really took off. I was Chief Digital Officer of the World Science Festival at the time, and not everybody was a huge fan of my approach to simplifying evolution for regular folks. The trolling was incredible; later (because of this?) The Week stopped accepting comments on stories. But before they did this piece gained more than a hundred thousand shares on Facebook and over seven thousand comments. You can read the original article here.
