Boston Globe expanding tech coverage
Gregory Huang, the business editor of the Boston Globe, writes about its expanded technology coverage.
Huang writes, “We’re very excited to announce a major expansion in the Globe’s coverage of technology and innovation. Our goal is to cover — on a daily basis and with a critical eye — the people, companies, and ideas that are driving growth and new trends, and to highlight this key pillar of the local economy and everyday life.
“From the latest advances in software, cybersecurity, robotics, and health tech to the perils of artificial intelligence and the impact of automation on jobs, we’ll have it covered. Our reporters will provide a behind-the-scenes look at everything from who’s driving the hottest new startups and investments to who’s hiring and firing at the biggest employers in the region. And what it all means for you, the reader.
“To that end, we’ve moved fast to expand our team of technology reporters. Aaron Pressman and Pranshu Verma joined the Globe this summer (most recently from Fortune and the New York Times, respectively). They are stellar additions to our existing team of Hiawatha Bray, Scott Kirsner, and Anissa Gardizy, all of whom will contribute to the section.
“Speaking of which, there will be a newly designed landing page for the section online. This page will host all of our technology-related stories, plus some exciting new features, including a ‘tech unicorn tracker’ that gives you detailed information about all the startups in Massachusetts that are valued at $1 billion or more (there’s that “B” again).”
