As GettingIt's Interactive Media Editor, David Cassel covered the internet and assembled images for our daily web page sampler "Flip." He's also written for Wired, Salon, Feed, Suck, MSNBC, and the Wall Street Journal Interactive Edition. "I went online in 1993 and never looked back."

David still freelances articles about the the Internet, and launched the pop culture weblog, Destinyland. But he's best known for his AOL Watch newsletter, which has over 50,000 subscribers.

Being a corporate America gadfly ultimately led to an interview on CNN's financial channel, and a memorable quote when the New York Times asked about competition between online services.

"Watching AOL fight Microsoft is like watching Godzilla fight Mothra, and not being sure which one you're rooting for."
