TechNode English gets some adult supervision

I am very pleased to announce that Colum Murphy, former Editorial Director of Sixth Tone, has joined TechNode as Managing Editor. With his more than 13 years in the media business, including stints at the Far Eastern Review, Lloyd’s List, and the Wall Street Journal, Colum brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience.

To properly inform the world about China through the lens of technology, we’ve made vast improvements over the last few years in how and what we cover, including faster reporting of on-the-ground developments, newsletters that provide snapshots and summaries of the most important news, and longer, more in-depth features. That being said, there’s still lots more to do: continue to improve our features, better define our voice and coverage, improve our training and coaching of young writers, and explore new content formats.

Under Colum’s leadership, we will build on our already solid foundation and bring you even better and more interesting news and insight into China’s fast evolving tech scene. We’re working on a range of exciting plans, including more blockchain coverage, vertical-specific and in-depth newsletters, and revamping our entire range of content. This is an exciting time in China’s tech that requires a different approach to storytelling and we want to lead the way.

Keep your eyes peeled and, as always, we welcome any questions or feedback you might have.
