Farhad Manjoo is leaving The Wall Street Journal after only four months. He is headed to The New York Times to cover personal technology.
Manjoo joined the Journal in September after covering tech for Slate for five years.
“In his new role at the Times, Farhad will push ‘State of the Art’ beyond traditional reviews to examine the tech industry more broadly and the role technology plays across the board — what he calls ‘tech’s intrusion into society,’” wrote Dean Murphy, the Times’ business editor, in a note to staffers.
