Xconomy senior editor moving to Boston from Seattle, but keeps Seattle beat

Curt Woodward, a senior editor for Xconomy.com in Seattle, is moving to the tech news site’s main office in Boston but will continue to cover Seattle companies and topics.

Woodward writes, “I also have the good fortune to be a part of the team at Xconomy, because my bosses were enthusiastic about devising a plan to keep me on the beat covering Seattle companies and investors on a daily basis, even though my desk will be a bit farther away.

“I’m not going to pretend that I won’t be missing something by not being available for a spur-of-the-moment coffee or happy hour drink with the people whose stories I tell. But I’m dedicated to staying connected with the people who inform and read our coverage here in Seattle.

“Luckily, we can crib from the playbook that Xconomy Seattle editor Luke Timmerman has developed for his high-profile national coverage of the biotech sector. Luke’s actually got this down to a science: Regular trips to the cities he covers, usually around one of our events or a big industry get-together, with more interviews than you can imagine packed into the surrounding days, gathering material that he uses for weeks afterward.

“As far as the day-to-day work of reporting goes, much of it will actually stay the same. My routine involves a lot of e-mail, RSS subscriptions (yes, still), SEC filings, social media posts, and phone calls with folks who help me keep tabs on the flow of information around Seattle.”
