FORA.tv Speaker - Josh McHugh
Josh McHugh is CEO of Attention Span Media. Josh's experience at the intersection of technology, media and business began 14 years ago at Forbes Magazine, where he chronicled the brainiacs and billionaires behind the turn-of-the-century tech upheaval.
Before joining Attention Span in 2008, he was a contributing editor at Wired Magazine and a writer for Vanity Fair, Outside, and shelfloads of other publications. He has also worked as a copywriter for advertising juggernauts Wieden + Kennedy and Goodby, Silverstein & Partners.
A cable series based on his Wired story "Drug Test Cowboys," about professional pharmaceutical trial participants, was, for a brief, heady time, in development hell at Comedy Central.
