Hours ago, I let y’all know I had put in my last day at Mashable.
Not being one to waste time, I am now embarking on my first day of work at VentureBeat.
It’s a smaller publication, but as partially noted in my post on leaving the Mash, I have for some time wanted to work somewhere with a niche-y focus on technology and business — particularly early-stage startups. And as Mashable pursues a more mainstream (and for them, a worthwhile and highly profitable) path, I am content to focus on what I do best: Talking to developers, designers, investors, analysts, and others about what makes the Silicon Valley microverse tick, and retelling that story to a wide-ranging audience of early adopters, tech generalists, and businessfolk around the world.
I’m thrilled to be working with some of the finest reporters in San Francisco, and I am looking forward to the new challenges and new victories of this new job.
I hope you’ll continue to follow my writings, which will center around tech news and startup reviews. I’ll need your support to continue doing what I do best, and I promise to keep it interesting for you! Stay tuned for a string of think pieces, iconoclastic interviews, unique analyses, and generally the kind of journalism I write when I’m at the top of my game.
And to my longtime friends who’ve been reading my stuff and supporting me since my days at ReadWriteWeb (and even before!), you have my hearty thanks and sincere love. Without your attention and feedback, I’d be nowhere.
