As a youngster, Greg Linch wanted to be a scientist and inventor. Then, as a teenager, he turned his eye toward writing and later reporting. Somewhere along the way those interests blended and he now works on data and technology projects for The Washington Post's local desk. Using his knowledge of journalism and code, Greg collaborates with reporters, editors, designers and developers on a wide array of topics. Crime, transportation, education, government -- you name it. He worked on two start-ups before joining the Post: Publish2, which offers software platforms for newsrooms, and CoPress, which worked with college media organizations to thrive digitally. Greg serves on the ONA board of directors and teaches a media web development class at Georgetown University. Some of his other interests include science, milkshakes and karaoke.
