Janet Tu here, taking over from the metaphorically big (yet stylish!) shoes of Sharon Chan.
Today is moving-in day — literally. I’ll be packing up my old desk and moving to the new, and then spending the rest of the week meeting folks and getting a lay of the land.
A bit about me: I grew up in Seattle and, for most of the past 15 years, I’ve worked at The Seattle Times. I’ve covered everything from theater to arts and entertainment, transportation to natural resources. Most recently, I covered religion and arts news, including stories about the Dalai Lama’s visit to Seattle, efforts by the local Pakistani community to help an earthquake-devastated village in Pakistan, and how the recession is affecting arts organizations.
Covering tech — and biz — is new for me. But I’m immensely curious about new developments and the way technology is changing our culture and communities. I love learning new stuff and sharing what I learn with readers.
Now — how about you? What would you like to read about on Microsoft Pri0? How about in the print edition of the newspaper?
In the meantime, just so the transition isn’t too jarring, here’s a video of what it’s like for me taking over the beat. (Video courtesy of planetwhonews):
