Weeding through Technology with Alexis Madrigal

Technology today is moving so fast it seems like new versions of cell phones come out every month, the computer you bought last year might already seem sluggish and behind the times, and just when you thought there was an app for everything, another one pops up. Keeping up with all of this can be a bit overwhelming, but that’s why we have Alexis Madrigal, senior editor of The Atlantic and overseer of the publication’s Technology channel.

Deemed the “perfect modern reporter” by the New York Observer, Madrigal tracks down new, innovative technologies – sometimes in unexpected places – and briefs his readers regarding what it is, what it does and how it might change things, for better or for worse. He also focuses on technology people are currently using, not just the latest and greatest.

Among his many accomplishments, during his tenure with Wired Magazine, Madrigal made Wired Science into one of the most popular blogs in the world.  He is the co-founder of Longshot Magazine, a high-speed media experiment that involved collaboration with thousands of creative folks from around the globe, and co-founded Haiti ReWired, an online community dedicated to the discussion of technology, infrastructure and the future of Haiti.  Join Madrigal at the upcoming Atlantic Meets the Pacific Conference.
