SF Chronicle Debuts New Tech Blog

    March 16, 2006

A mix of business and technology journalists for the San Francisco Chronicle have launched a new blog called “The Tech Chronicles,” that will cover, you guessed it, the Bay Area techscape.

Alan Saracevic, the leading contributor, shared this in his introductory post today:

“Those of you who follow us in print know we spend a lot of time and energy covering the biggest story in the Bay Area: Technology. For the newbies out there, we hope you’ll make us a regular stop on your daily Internet rounds.

So, what are we going to do? We’re going to report and write about the technology universe, centering our coverage on Silicon Valley and San Francisco but spreading it around when needed. From wired to weird, if it’s got bits it fits.”

From an outsider’s perspective, the Chronicle has been a little trepidatious (cough, slow) in the socialization of its content, in comparison, for example, to regional papers like the Mercury News and national papers like the NYT, but with that said, the organization seems to be catching up *very* quickly, particularly when you look at what Marcus Chan and Benny Evangelista are doing with podcasts on SFGate.com, also, how the paper’s bolstering its online presence via other forms of original syndicated content, like the Tech Chronicles, but also blogs on Culture and Politics. It’s good stuff.

Congrats the Chronicle team, I’m subscribed.
