"I can’t think of a writer I’ve decided never to work with based on pitches alone. It’s always a function of what comes after the pitch — how good the work is, how easy the writer is to work with. I think I have a complicated cost-benefit algorithm involving the time it takes to produce a story versus the quality of the story, the quality of reporting versus the quality of writing versus the willingness to be edited, the quality of ideas (and their timeliness) versus the ability to execute them…I don’t know. When they replace us all with AIs, the EditBot 6000 will be able to articulate all that much better. (But will it dream?)"
