Laurie Segall@lauriesegallcnn · CNN
Hi - I'm Laurie Segall. I'm our tech correspondent at CNN. I've covered startups and innovation for the last six years, interviewing everyone from the founders of Instagram to the founders of Twitter. I also work on a wide range of series that focus on the intersection of technology and society. They cover everything from sex and drugs in Silicon Valley to the implications of revenge porn, a type of cyber harassment. I'm most interested in topics we haven't talked about enough - whether it's mental illness in the tech community or an inside look at failure and hardships of building a successful business. I'm a champion for underdogs and untold stories. Ask me anything!
