Users have increasingly short attention spans and capturing their interest – and keeping it, has never been more important. Communicating quickly and effectively helps you share ideas, explain how a product works and even improves day-to-day communication in life.

On April 2nd, Josh Constine, Writer for TechCrunch, will be joining us for a Q&A about how to write engaging, effective and entertaining copy for the Web. We'll hear about his background, his work at TechCrunch, and how what he has learned over his career can help you master an incredibly important facet of designing for the Web.

About Josh Constine

Josh writes tech news and opinion for TechCrunch. He is an experienced public speaker, having moderated fireside chats and panels at over a dozen conferences including SXSW and TechCrunch Disrupt. He specializes in critical analysis of social and communication technologies. His goal is to bring readers deep insight into the ramifications of breaking news from startups and tech giants alike. His beats include Facebook, Google, social networks, advertising, music, dating, and social good. He loves writing in-depth launch profiles of new startups.

Constine's past on-stage interviews include Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Dropbox CEO Drew Houston, AOL CEO Tim Armstrong, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, and a hilarious panel with founders of Rap Genius.

Prior to TechCrunch, Constine designed a Stanford University Master’s program in Cybersociology to study how humans interact through technology. He researched privacy, anonymity, meme popularity cycles, and how tech is changing interpersonal relationships. He currently lives and plays in the Mission district of San Francisco.

    Is Josh giving a solo talk, or will this be a Q&A session like the last event on frameworks?

      It is still up in the air, but will likely be a Q&A
