Neowin, used in all the correct ways, can be an excellent platform for aspiring journalists and students, and in the last decade I've signed off on a number of university applications and agreed to be a character witness for job applications for past and current staff in all capacities. So it gives me an extra special pleasure to announce that Tom Warren, after leaving Neowin just over a year ago to create the Microsoft orientated website WinRumors, has agreed to terms with The Verge to join them as Senior Editor for the UK starting in the new year.
Joshua Topolsky, Editor-in-chief and co-founder of The Verge had this to say of the move:
We are extremely excited for Tom to be joining the ranks here. We fully expect him to not only supercharge our coverage of all things Microsoft, but to also provide insight and expertise across a wide range of topics, Redmond-centric or otherwise. Tom is a terrific talent, and we feel very lucky to have him on board. He will be officially joining us at the start of the new year, but you'll probably see him making some appearances on our pages sooner than that.
So far, the comments over at The Verge indicate a broad sense of excitement of what can only be described as a great coup for the site which only started this year.
You can read Toms announcement on the move over at WinRumors.
But on behalf of all the Neowin Staff, we wish Tom all the best in his new job, and at the same time feel proud that he made his start right here with us.
