For any strangers who may have lost their way and ended up on this blog, my name is Aaron Wiener, and I’m an American journalist in Berlin on a Fulbright journalism grant. (Those of you who do know me: Be patient for a second, please. I’ve catered to you plenty.) In Washington, DC, I worked as the editor of The Washington Independent, an editor at Talking Points Memo, an environmental reporter, and a freelancer for Slate, Foreign Policy, the Boston Globe, the Washington City Paper, and other publications. Here in Berlin, I’ll be writing for three German papers in succession — The Local, the Spiegel’s international edition, and the Tageszeitung — and doing some freelance work for American papers, websites, and magazines. At least that’s the plan.
