The Information has hired Arielle Pardes who will be leading coverage of Silicon Valley people and culture as a reporter.
Pardes previously covered startups and Silicon Valley for Wired, where she wrote two cover stories and nearly a dozen long-form features for the magazine. Her work shaped conversations about tech’s great migration to Miami, the emerging class of Gen Z venture capitalists and the pandemic lives of Silicon Valley’s service workers.
She was the first to describe ephemera like “selfie museums,” and has broken news about companies such as Instagram, Reddit and Twitter.
Before working at Wired, Pardes was a senior editor at Vice in Los Angeles.
She studied philosophy and gender studies at the University of Pennsylvania.
