Marcus Chan, Bloomberg.com tech editor, writes about the expanded tech section on its website.
Chan writes, “We’ve been beefing up our SF bureau, which now has approximately 70 editors and writers including tech reporting titans like Rich Jaroslovsky, Emily Chang, Cory Johnson, Brad Stone, Jon Erlichman, Ari Levy, Doug MacMillan, and Peter Burrows. Also, Bloomberg TV’s ‘Bloomberg West‘ is filmed in San Francisco (this week marks the one-year anniversary of the show.)
“In addition to expanding staff to bring you more original content, tonight we are launching a new technology channel on Bloomberg.com (www.bloomberg.com/technology). The new section will include a host of content features, including:
–Blogs: The culture, clashes, and controversies. The personalities and the people behind the companies making news. Also, we’ll blog about the latest tech deals and how they might disrupt the industry.
–Billionaires: How much did Mark Zuckerberg gain? How much did Larry Page lose? Each week, we’ll list how much the tech world’s richest gained or lost.
–VC deals: Which startups landed the biggest round of financing? Keep track of the hottest startups with this weekly list of venture capital deals.
