Walter S. Mossberg is an American journalist. He is widely credited with pioneering the modern, consumer-focused, technology review and commentary.

From 1991 through 2013, he was the principal technology columnist for The Wall Street Journal. He also co-founded AllThingsD, Recode and the D and Code Conferences. From 2015 to 2017, Mossberg was Executive Editor of The Verge and Editor-at-Large of Recode, web sites owned by Vox Media. Mossberg wrote a weekly column for both and also had a weekly podcast, Ctrl-Walt-Delete. Mossberg was also co-executive producer of the annual Code Conference. 
Mossberg became a podcaster and host of conferences run by his publications. One of the few writers to truly have an “in” with Jobs, Mossberg famously got the chance to do one of only two joint interviews the Apple co-founder gave with Bill Gates (the other one was a far less chummy 1991 print interview for Fortune magazine.)

Mossberg’s 2007 discussion was one of the most out-of-his-comfort-zone interviews of Jobs’ career. It ended with the Apple chief quoting The Beatles to describe his relationship with Gates.
In April 2017, Mossberg announced his plans to retire. He serves on the board of The News Literacy Project and is writing a book for St. Martin’s Press.

The Interviewer will be Steve Clemons (Editor at Large of the Atlantic)
Steve Clemons is Washington Editor-At-Large for The Atlantic and National Journal; and Editor-in-Chief of AtlanticLIVE, National Journal LIVE, and QuartzLIVE. He is also Editor-at-Large for Quartz and an MSNBC contributor. At AtlanticLIVE, The Atlantic’s premium events division, Clemons develops concepts and editorial content and leads programs as an interviewer, moderator, and host.
