I have major sleeping problems. I'd rather be up thinking about things than actually sleeping.

Browseability is the key online.

Politicians often say to me, 'Articles in the 'Observer' don't get me votes, but you get me money.'

It's easier to build a business around a first-class product, even if it's a more expensive product to produce.

Age is a convenient barometer of what a person is capable of, but it is only one.

Peter Kaplan was a partner, a mentor, and a friend.

I know I've done good things, I know I've done bad things.

I speak with my father about everything in my life.

The only things that are really permanent are love, family, friendship, and that is a lesson. At the end of the day, that's really what it boils down to. The rest of it is just stuff.

The goal is to do things that are exciting and respectable.

My father's favorite movie was 'The Dirty Dozen.'

New York City is the most important location in the world... it is the center for fashion, culture and finance.

People are always alert to any change and skeptical by nature.

Peter Kaplan was a giant.

People are hysterical about the death of newspapers, and I would say, 'They're not dying; they're just kind of reinventing themselves.'

I was raised to work for my father when I was four.

When I bought 'The New York Observer,' my experience in journalism was limited to a single article I had written for a college magazine.

Every 'Observer' writer wants to be a novelist.

I don't have time to date.

Growing up, around the dinner table my father and I didn't talk sports. We talked business.

I ran my own business when I was 19, buying condos and renovating apartment buildings.

I have six jobs.

I grew up, a kid in New Jersey.

I own 'The New York Observer.'

I love my father, but I have worked to develop a separate and distinct identity in different projects I have worked on.

People who live in SoHo want to be close to the energy, culture, and eccentricities of New York's most charming neighborhoods.

The N.Y.C. tech scene is vibrant, and Betabeat will be a great vehicle to cover it in depth.

I'm definitely scared about newspapers. The problem is nobody wants to catch a falling knife, and nobody knows where things will stabilise. The value of newspapers has dropped significantly. I think we still have more pain to be felt.

'The Observer's Very Short List' is another example of how the Observer Media Group offers its readers the most cutting-edge information, available in a variety of platforms and written by an editorial staff known for its distinctive and discerning style and wit.

In this day and age, much of journalism is about right or left, conservative or liberal, and 'The Observer' is just that: an observer. It is about truth.

I always thought, 'Will I go into the business, or will I not go into the business?' But when my father got arrested, I really didn't have a choice. I was the oldest son, and it was something that had to be done.
