As an editor at Worth magazine in the early ’90s, Weber oversaw its first electronic edition on AOL. He began his career as a local-news reporter at the Daily Item in Clinton, Mass., before joining the Dow Jones News Service in 1991, where he covered technology and the fledgling world of online services.
A native of Michigan, he graduated from Princeton University in 1989 with an A.B. in politics. In 2010 he was a Ferris Professor of Journalism at Princeton, where he developed and taught a course entitled the Digital Journalist. He also serves as a trustee of the Daily Princetonian.
