Best Career Advice

“Telling people what you want from them is actually an extremely valuable way to interact professionally. And a lot of people don’t do it and aren’t good at doing it. And the worst they can do is say no, and maybe they will, and that’s fine, but you shouldn’t relieve them of the obligation of saying no to you by not asking.”

Career Challenge

“Early in the history of Lawfare, when we realized that if we have this readership, we said, well, gosh, we should get the readership to contribute to the site. And we should build a document library of the entire field of national security law. We should do it on the basis of a Wiki and just have people contribute material. Wikipedia can do it. We’ve got a much smaller field than the whole world. So we should build the whole world of national security law. And we built this Wiki and nobody contributed to it. And it was completely embarrassing… And here’s the wonderful thing. Nobody remembers that we even tried it. It loomed kind of large for me because it was this great idea that I was sure was going to be a big thing. And it was kind of a mess, but nobody else remembers that we ever tried it.”
