Adrianne Jeffries is joining Vice as managing editor of its Motherboard tech sites. Jeffries was most recently a reporter for The Verge. She previously worked for The New York Observer, where she helped found its tech site BetaBeat.
“There’s great tech reporting out there, and then there’s everything else,” wrote Motherboard’s editor, Derek Mead, in a memo. “I’ll put it bluntly: The echo chamber of endless blathering about press releases, rumors, and tweets from semi-notable entities is a waste of fucking time. And while she can put it far more eloquently than I, the fact that Adrianne holds a similar vision makes me rather excited for our future.”
Jeffries joins Vice tomorrow.
