When you work on news at Internet speed, it’s sometimes hard to remember what you did last week. Maybe that’s why I enjoy this annual ritual of sifting through the best journalism of the year that appeared on Xconomy Seattle. This task reminds me that we’ve published a lot of interesting, important, and exclusive stories about the innovation community in the Pacific Northwest.
Before diving into our best coverage of tech, biotech, and cleantech in 2012, I’d like to remind readers that we have a new face covering the news. A couple months ago, ace tech writer Curt Woodward transferred to the Xconomy Boston office. As Curt has been ramping up his coverage on the East Coast, we’ve had the pleasure of recruiting another terrific journalistic talent here in Seattle—Benjamin Romano.
Ben brings a rare mix of experience to this job, as a former Microsoft beat reporter for The Seattle Times and as a U.S. correspondent for Recharge, a clean energy publication. Even though he only started in late October, he has already delivered a couple stories strong enough to make the list you see below.
If you have any tips about people and companies on the Northwest tech and cleantech beats, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Life sciences news and features are best sent to me at email@example.com. We look forward to delivering more quality journalism for the community in the year ahead. Thanks to all the readers and sponsors out there who have supported us in this great adventure in online journalism.
