Mark Bergen

I work for Re/code and cover Google, mostly. Earlier, I reported on mobile operators, devices, payments and media for Advertising Age. Before that, I reported from India. Mostly I was in Bangalore, but I spent time and lost sweat in other lovely places. My work appeared in the New York Times, Reuters, the Atlantic Cities, the Wall St. Journal, Times of London, TIME, Quartz, GQ, the BBC, Mint, the Caravan, the Economist Intelligence Unit, and the New Yorker dot com, etcetera. Akash Kapur, writing in The New Yorker, ranked my profile of India’s central banker, for The Caravan, among the best business writing of 2013, which was nice of him. And my feature on T-Mobile for Ad Age was awarded the 2015 Jesse H. Neal prize for “best profile.“ I once ran a blog on urban economics for Forbes. My reporting has also appeared in GOOD, Tablet, The Chicago Reader, The Awl, TPM, and so on. I’ve worked as an investigative reporter and policy researcher. And I co-founded City Ledes, an urban news aggregator, may she rest in peace. I hold a BA in Sociology from the College of Wooster and a Masters in Public Policy from the University of Chicago. I live in San Francisco.
