What’s EE Times’ Future Now? (And What’s Ours?)

By now, you’ve probably heard: Two cornerstone editors are leaving EE Times. Peter Clarke (London) and Dylan McGrath (San Francisco) are headed off to different pastures to ply their trade, McGrath to IHS and Peter to parts unknown. Those two guys represent half the core staff of EE Times, with Junko Yoshida and Rick Merritt […]

Journalism jobs decline but #journalism itself?

Journalism jobs are hard to come by these days, two decades into the collapse of advertising-based journalism model. That shouldn’t come as a big surprise. Look at the journalism jobs trend infographic below and you’ll get a clearer picture. But I quibble with the mainstream hang-wringing over the decline of journalism jobs, and I especially […]

Going down the road

Yeah, moving on again. If you’re read Bob Jones’ post at Publitek, Lou Covey’s, or caught a few social-media updates in the past few weeks, you’re hip to the news that I left UBM Tech and the EBN editor-in-chief role for the role of editor-in-chief at Cadence, the EDA giant.  Again?

The project plans to provide 1,000-word excerpts to a committee of readers, which […]

Reading on mobile devices grows

No surprise, perhaps, but we’re reading more on our mobile devices. Ken Hess, writing on ZDNet, actually has a clever name for devices we use primarily to get information (as opposed to play games or talk): I’ll dub it The Infoslab: A decision device. Where you get headlines, stock reports, messages and all of your […]
