Jason Pontin Editor

I’m the editor in chief and the publisher of MIT Technology Review. That means I direct the editorial, platform development, and general business strategy of the company’s digital and print publications, as well as our events.

Before joining MIT Technology Review in 2004, I was the editor in chief of a now-vanished biotechnology magazine I founded. Between 1996 and 2002, I was the editor of Red Herring magazine, which the Wall Street Journal called the “bible of the dot.com boom.” I grew up on a farm in Northern California, where my mother raised game birds for the restaurants of San Francisco, but I was educated in England, at Harrow School and Oxford University. Consequently, my accent wanders alarmingly.
