Top editors just can’t resist shiny new job titles in the Silicon startup scene lately.
Nearly a week ago, The Wire editor Gabriel Snyder announced his jump from the Atlantic Media site to Inside.com, a mobile news venture.
And on Monday, Fiona Spruill, the former mobile and Web editor at The New York Times, revealed her new gig as head of global growth at Meetup.com, a site for organizing in-real-life gatherings.

Spruill, a 14-year veteran at the Times, hired roughly 80 percent of the paper’s online staff over the eight years she spent leading coverage on NYTimes.com, according to a Meetup blog post announcing her hiring. Among her other accolades, the dual U.S. and U.K. citizen served as the paper’s homepage editor on Sept. 11, 2001.
