Alex Williams is founder and editor in chief of The New
Stack. He's a longtime technology journalist who did stints at
TechCrunch, SiliconAngle and what is now known as ReadWrite. Alex has
been a journalist since the late 1980s, starting at the Augusta
Chronicle in 1989 after completing his master's degree from
Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. Early in his
career, he reported for newspapers in New York and Oregon, worked for a
magazine writing about home textiles (ask him about it some time) and
spent a year as a television business news anchor. Alex's online career
began in 2003 when he did a web event called RSS WinterFest, which was
followed by Podcast Hotel, an event all about the intersection of art
and commerce and the impact digital media has on independent culture.
While in college, Alex played baseball in France, which led him to writing
stories of his experiences, and eventually a career in journalism.
