The New York Times appointed Nick Bilton, who has worked at the paper for six years but never as a writer, as its new lead tech blogger for its Bits blog.
Bilton has been an art director for the business section and worked in tech jobs at the paper.
Bilton writes, “I hope to apply all of these experiences, and the vision Iâ€™ve garnered over the past few years, in my new role at Bits.
“I will continue looking out over the landscape of technology, culture and society, helping to report and analyze the implications and predictions of tomorrow.
“I also hope to bring a new style of telling stories to the blog. I donâ€™t believe storytelling is an art form of words alone. Itâ€™s ocular, auditory, interactive and asynchronous. As I settle in and take off my training wheels, you can expect more graphics, audio slide shows, videos and data visualization on Bits.”
