You gave it a full answer to my question, which I appreciate, but I have questions. Because I’m very interested in career changing, not myself, but I’m just interested in how it works. “Not for me, but good for you.” He had three little kids, like, that seems like a great opportunity for him. And we’ve been in pretty regular touch ever since, as that has evolved. I can’t remember if we talked about, I mean, because he was, he had a minder here from Linked In when he was on, and he was a little tight. But I clearly remember seeing him like a year after he’d taken the job, and he was sitting in the office at the Empire State Building, and he was not happy, and he was not happy for the obvious reasons you would think someone who’d grown up and built a really good career in editorial, would be unhappy when they went to a tech company, which is, it was a tech company. And it’s worked out, but I’m assuming that some of that was in your head when you went over as well. This is not what we wanted, at all.” “We want a journalist. Be quiet over there.” “Just go pick the articles, but stop. That just stressed me out so much, the way that you layered that out. But no, my job is to come to Linked In and continue to write about and create media about big ideas in the same way that I was doing it at Wired. And I did want to mention that Dan Roth has been on this show before, and Dan had also done really well as a writer, had been at Wired, and then went on to create this sort of content business at Linked In. Yes, you should definitely go to Linked In.” And in the back of my head, I also was like, “Yeah, I wouldn’t do it myself,” but you know. Like when Dan came to Linked In, Dan was journalist. When I came to Linked In, Dan had built a team of more than 50 people working around the world on several different news products. I think the only thing that is similar is that Dan had a really clear mandate and I have a really clear mandate and I think having a clear mandate helps you be effective at the thing that you’re doing.

There are a handful of people who do what I am doing, which is really content creation. And that is, it arrives every day for Linked In members, and it is a summary of the day’s news and each piece of news has a collection of conversation that’s happening on the site.Peter Kafka: This is Recode Media with Peter Kafka, that is me. I have a very special guest here today, my old friend, Jessi Hempel, who I think of as one of my favorite writers. I, being a news junkie living in New York City and having a million outlets for my news, never looked at this before I got to Linked In. People who are looking to hire people who have been laid off. I think when I went from Businessweek to Fortune, my approach to stories changed slightly, based on the slight difference in readers between Businessweek and Fortune.

Like, I, you know, I got in the room because people would tell me things, and then because I was in the room, I got to learn to be a writer. I want to know how the decision to make the thing got made. If it’s just a job posting or why do they care about anything? Clearly, they want people to hang out on the site because they get more engagement there. What everyone says they want to do, you actually did. Actually, I think everyone comes out of journalism school saying, “I’m going to write a National Magazine Award-winning piece for the New Yorker.” Yeah. So, I would say this about myself, I’m a writer who loves writing, and is a fine enough writer. Like, you practice it and you practice it and you practice it and you get better at it. I think it is both because I practice so hard and because I think it was a product of my curiosity, the thing that I was curious about, and as a result, my ability to listen. I think what you’re asking — and stop me if I’m wrong on this — but I think what you’re asking to some degree is why does Linked In care about paying people to create original content for the platform? You can go even further back, why do they care about ...

You can go directly and talk to these people about it.’” wherever you get your podcasts — including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Pocket Casts, and Overcast. You kind of have to say that, because I’m currently the writer in the room with you. By the way, our editors, I think this is maybe the important piece here: Our editors are not, for the most part, doing what I’m doing. The Daily Rundown happens in seven different languages in 11 different markets.It’s funny, my audience, like I think about this one guy, Adam Marx. I’m guessing he’s listening to this podcast because I connected with him on Backchannel and he has basically followed me on all the social platforms. I mean, as somebody who has a new baby, I can tell you that I think that may be impossible to ignore. He was the original “adult supervision.” Right, but then you look at, I don’t know, Space X, Airbnb, Slack ... I don’t mind them, because I figure everyone’s going in eyes wide open.Now he’s on Linked In and he converses with me about what I’m writing. I like to think of a future in which I can ignore him for just a little bit. I want to talk about some of the stuff you are creating at Linked In. I’ll read the headline for you and you can riff on it. The criticism over the previous two years was centered, I think correctly, at Mark Zuckerberg because he’s the CEO. They need to do all the aspects of the job that the founder doesn’t want to do, and then they also need to be able to gently manipulate the founder into doing the things that the founder want to do. And by the way, those jobs mostly fall to women at tech companies in Silicon Valley. Yeah, oh, and also I guess Dick Costolo at Twitter, but Twitter’s its own weird counterexample. Most of these companies, by the way, don’t succeed. When it becomes time for them to go public, the investors all know full well that is it ...The core business of Microsoft-owned Linked In is helping professionals network and find new jobs — but unlike its social media peers, it’s unabashedly a media company, too.

That lasted maybe a year, and you know, after Condé Nast bought that property, Medium came out and said oh, actually, we’re not interested in advertising. Yeah, one of the many pivots, but like really bad timing for Condé Nast, which had bought this property to learn about how advertising might work on it. So, that’s unfortunate, but really great timing for me, because I got a whole year and a half of creating long-form journalism on a software that really valued the audience and gave the audience basically a two-way dialog with the writer. And what that software did well, I mean, Medium had and has a lot of challenges, but it has some of the most elegant social software in the biz, and it does a really great job of setting up the reader and the writer to be in conversation with each other in meaningful ways.

And that’s changed a ton over the course of my career, I would say. I did want to ask you about the Linked In stuff, and then commenting, but you know, I think of Linked In as a place you go to put stuff, instead of a blog, and a lot of times it’s terrible stuff, and sometimes it’s good, and sometimes Jeff Bezos uses it to talk about his personal life. Google has a lot of things, but Google at its core is a search engine. So, Linked In is working on building up anything that connects people to opportunity.
