David Kirkpatrick Hired as Technology Columnist at The Daily Beast

Former Fortune journalist and author David Kirkpatrick has joined The Daily Beast as technology columnist. Daily Beast executive editor Edward Felsenthal had this statement: “David has a long, extraordinary record as a reporter, author and convenor of the best minds in technology, we are thrilled to have him.”

We interviewed Kirkpatrick for Media Beat earlier this year, talking about his new book, The Facebook Effect: The Inside Story of the Company That Is Connecting the World. Follow the links below to watch the series.

One installment is embedded above, as Kirkpatrick advised young journalists: “I would say write a book, if you possibly can. Even in this world we live in that’s all digital and short hits. But don’t do it unless you are passionate about the topic.”
