Hi, I'm Danny. I’m managing editor at TechCrunch and I analyze issues of technology and global power. Get in touch at

Formerly, I was a venture capitalist at Charles River Ventures and General Catalyst. I'm a Harvard PhD dropout and a graduate of Stanford in Mathematical and Computational Sciences.

Current Obsessions

The things I think about every day:

  • The Rise of China
  • Data Sovereignty and the fracturing of the internet
  • Cost Disease
  • Economic development in the 21st century
  • The challenge of megaprojects and infrastructure

Image of the Week: Innovation in Transportation

Korea is a crowded place, an urban environment often more geared to pedestrians than motorists (although you would never know that trying to cross an intersection). Engineers at KAIST are searching for the next major revolution in personal transportation, and one example of this is an ultra-compact electric car that seems perfect for the hipster road warrior. I caught the car in action a few days ago, and ran after it to its home on campus.

And it's home outside of mechanical engineering.
