VentureBeat: News startup Politix nabs first editor-in-chief from Politico

VentureBeat’s Christina Farr gave us some great coverage on nabbing our first Editor-in-Chief, David Mark. “This is an impressive hire for the startup in light of Mark’s traditional reporting background,” Farr writes, going on to quote David:

Mark told VentureBeat that he joined the Palo Alto-based company as he has long been interested in the convergence of technology and politics.

“With the news business changing rapidly, readers are looking for new ways to get political information and share their own views,” said Mark. ”Rather than wading through dry analyses of congressional bills, many folks form their ideas by reading postings from others — and then offering their own take,” he added.

We’re thrilled to have David Mark on board to join us in the coming weeks, and are looking forward to his collaboration as we continue to focus on creating a great, interactive experience for users around political discussion. Read the full story on VentureBeat:
