Europe tech editor Rooney leaving Wall Street Journal
Ben Rooney, the technology editor for The Wall Street Journal Europe, is leaving the news organization.
In an email to his colleagues on Friday, Rooney wrote:
Today is my last day at The Wall Street Journal. To continue my Sound of Music theme as Maria so sagaciously put it: “When the Lord closes a door, somewhere He opens a window” (the Lord clearly never worked in crime prevention). I am off to a new venture.
It has been an amazing three years working at what is unquestionably the world’s greatest newspaper and I have loved the opportunities it has afforded — from interviewing presidents and prime ministers, to having a 3D rendering of my face in tomato ketchup. There aren’t many who can say that.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org unless I owe you money in which case that one doesn’t work.
Rooney had been with The Journal since 2010. Before that, he was a freelancer.
