Tiernan Ray of Barron’s writes about the 10th anniversary of its blog Tech Trader Daily.
Ray writes, “Ten years ago today, my colleague, friend and mentor Eric Savitz kicked off this blog with a goal to ‘apply some of the same Barron’s logic to daily coverage of the tech sector.’
“It was a bold move at the time for an Old Economy publication with an already established paywall: daily free coverage, with free-wheeling comments from anyone who wanted to chime in. This was the first blog on Barron’s, Eric fought hard for it, and his vision, implemented with his tremendous thoughtfulness, style and humor, paid off for Barron’s with a very valuable arrow added to the magazine’s quiver.
“Eric passed the baton to me when he became San Francisco bureau chief for Forbes in November of 2010. Today, he offers his years of experience and his cunning insights to many prominent tech companies in the service of Brunswick Group. He also continues to offer fun tidbits on all manner of things on Twitter a @savitz.
“34,582 posts and 182,925 comments later, this blog continues to aspire to Eric’s original vision, while perhaps producing less than his prolific output on a daily basis.”
