Harry McCracken Joins Fast Company

Harry McCracken has found his new home: Fast Company. According to McCracken, he’s joining the magazine July 21 as its new technology editor. McCracken left his role as editor-at-large for Time in May.

Here’s McCracken on why he chose Fast Company:

The publication is committed to excellence in print and online, a fact which its peers in the American Society of Magazine Editors recently celebrated by naming it as Magazine of the Year. Just as important, it’s produced by people who are scrappy, curious, and willing to experiment, traits which are reflected in the fact that much of the brand’s web presence consists of excellent specialized sites such as Co.Design. It’s going to be a fun, challenging place to be.

McCracken said he will continue to update Technologizer — the site he founded — every once in awhile and will continue to curate its Flipboard magazine.
