What first sparked your interest in tech?

Near the end of my undergrad, I spent some time interning at the Financial Post. My very first story was on Elon Musk’s SpaceX trying to land a used rocket on a floating drone-operated barge in the middle of a gulf. Besides being infinitely fascinating and an absolutely joy to write about, the story was my very first pitch and published piece. The next day Shopify went public and that absorbed the remainder of my time at FP.

What makes tech reporting different than other news?

Cutting-edge tech is having a profound effect on almost every aspect of our day-to-day lives, and tomorrow always brings something new to the table. Essentially, each article about tech acts as a potential preview for what life may look like in the near future.

What interests you about technology stocks?

Technology stocks are great to watch because the market determines in a very concrete way which devices will define our future. By following the emerging tech companies, you get to see in real time which innovations fly and which others will falter.

Marijuana News Today I won't belabor the point that the midterm elections are hugely important to the U.S. marijuana market, but the marijuana news today is really about what's happening tonight rather than today. As I've written several times before, a number of Americans are headed to the…

Marijuana News Today The marijuana news today is being consumed by the same topic that's overtaking virtually all news today: tomorrow's U.S. midterm elections. We've previously discussed how state ballots containing marijuana legalization proposals will have a strong influence on the future of the cannabis sector in the…

CGC Stock Forecast The immediate future of the marijuana industry looks dour. With a correction just beginning, it's likely that we won't see significant gains from the industry until another large outside investment or some other breaking news turns the industry around. Despite the near-term outlook, however, Canopy Growth…
