Contributing Writer

Fred Vogelstein joined The Information in 2016 to cover biotech after two decades of high tech reporting at Wired, Fortune and U.S. News & World Report. During that period he authored some of the seminal stories about Silicon Valley’s transformation from a computer industry hub into ground zero for the most powerful companies on the planet. They include some of the earliest investigations into Bill Gates' fear of Google, the mess at Yahoo, the rise of Facebook, and the revolutionary impacts of the iPhone and Android phone. He's been finalist for The Gerald Loeb Award, business journalism's top prize. His 2013 book "Dogfight: How Apple and Google went to War and Started a Revolution" was published in 17 countries. Earlier in his career he wrote about finance for The Wall Street Journal and Newsday. His work has also appeared in The New York Times Magazine, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Boston Globe. He once watched Jeff Bezos jump on a 12-foot-diameter trampoline for a photo shoot. Were that not in the days before camera phones he would have posted that picture here.
