Covering the intersection of technology and business

Kevin Roose of New York magazine writes about the intersection between technology and business.

He was interviewed by Capital New York about his work. Here is an excerpt:

CAPITAL: Do you have plans for future books? Is it challenging to balance your daily work for New York while also conceptualizing more long-term projects?

ROOSE: ​I don’t have any books planned at the moment, mostly because I’m enjoying this wild thing called “free time” (sp?). But I do have some longer-term projects in the works. And I’m still blogging and writing my column for New York. I like having a bunch of things going at once. It’s boredom insurance.

CAPITAL: You left The New York Times for New York magazine in May 2012. New York has made a slew of prominent hires this year, including Annie Lowrey from the Times, Lauren Kern from New York Times Magazine, Lindsay Zoladz from Pitchfork and Jessica Roy from Time. Is it safe to say that you’re happy with your decision to join New York? And did you start a trend? (We love trend pieces.)

ROOSE: ​ I love it here, and we’ve made some really great hires in the last few months, including all of the people you mentioned. (We’ve been hiring people from the NYT for years, though, so I’m really a poser, not a trendsetter.) The thing that’s changed in the last few years, though, is how national it is. When I first moved to the Bay Area to cover tech a few years ago, only the New York expats read New York regularly. Now, because of all the stuff we’re doing on the Web, and the overall quality of the mag, it’s become pretty standard reading out here. That’s been fun to watch.
