2014 just started, but it’s already brought us a new place to pitch our tech clients.
AllThingsD founders Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg bounced back from the Wall Street Journal‘s earlier announcement that it would not renew the property by launching a new tech news/reviews site called Re/code. The news broke on Twitter just after midnight, of course.
The AllThingsD name will be no more. Its former URL redirects to “Digits”, the WSJ‘s behind-the-paywall source for news on things that buzz and transmit data.
Today Swisher posted this quote on the new site:
“While we think tech news is important, it’s a better day to refresh, reimagine, reinvent and, most of all, rest.
But get ready: Re/code will launch at midnight ET, January 2”
We’ll be watching—as will anyone who cares about what’s going on in tech.
