Sam Diaz to Become Post’s New Technology Reporter

From the Post’s internal announcement, obtained by FishbowlDC:

    We’re delighted that Sam Diaz is going to put his enormous
    knowledge of the Internet and Web 2.0 to work for the newspaper as a member of our technology reporting team. While Alan Sipress will cover the big technology companies such as Google, Yahoo and Microsoft, Sam will report on the digital transformation of America by concentrating on small innovative companies, looking for the technology or the site that everyone is buzzing about, the place where all the smart venture capital money is going. That might be Twitter or Weblo or a new kind of search company. He will be looking for the next Facebook or Youtube. He will also cover consumer issues related to technology and the web, as well as continue to take the lead in our weekly tech podcast and PostIT.

    Sam came to the Post in 2005 as assistant technology editor.
    Before that, he worked at the San Jose Mercury News, where he covered
    personal technology and various tech industries for more than five years.

    Prior to that, he covered the transportation beat. His first job in
    reporting was in 1990 at The Fresno Bee, where he was a metro reporter and night city editor, until leaving the paper in 1997. He graduated from California State University Fresno. Sam is a terrific colleague and we are pleased he has agreed to take on this very important beat.
