Ethics Statement

Here is a statement of my ethics and coverage policies. It is more than most of you want to know, but, in the age of suspicion of the media, I am laying it all out.

I own one bitcoin. Other than that, I have invested in a few 401k plans, none of which are technology-centric.

I occasionally do speaking engagements, but typically am not paid for them. I do not consult for any companies, nor do I accept gifts or products of value from companies I cover.

Vox Media has a number of investors, including, but not limited to, Comcast Ventures and NBCUniversal, both of which are owned by Comcast Corporation.

My posts have total editorial independence from these investors, even when they touch on products and services these companies produce, compete with, or invest in. The same goes for all content on Recode and at our conferences. No one in this group has influence on or access to the posts we publish.
