Technical.ly hires Althouse to cover DC
Michaela Althouse is joining Technical.ly as a reporter to lead coverage of technology careers, growing businesses and the changing economy in D.C. and the surrounding metro area.
A Q&A on its website states:
Tell us a bit about your professional experience that led up to this role.
I guess the most noteworthy thing would be to say that I was of course a former Technical.ly intern in 2019! [Editor’s note: Check out her clips from this Philly-based role here, and her deep dive into D.C. tech + labor unions from 2020 here.] After that I was an editorial fellow at Washingtonian Magazine, and I’ve spent the last year at New Project Media, covering renewable energy news on the West Coast and intermountain west. Way back before I graduated I also worked for a newspaper in Dublin, Ireland called Metro Eireann, and Philadelphia magazine.
What are you looking forward to tackling in the role as Technical.ly’s lead reporter in DC?
I’m really looking forward to covering tech that’s creative, solves problems or is just something no one else has thought of before (like when I wrote about a tool to help beekeepers keep track of their hives as an intern, which is one of my favorite stories I’ve ever done). There’s a lot of fun to be had when you’re trying to create something new.
