Techmeme Becomes A Cyborg With Hire of Human Editor – Megan McCarthy

Freelance tech writer Megan McCarthy just landed one of the coolest jobs on the new web, editing semi-automated news aggregator Techmeme. The hire was made last month but just announced today in a blog post by site founder Gabe Rivera.

McCarthy’s new job is really interesting in a number of ways. Rivera says with her addition “it really feels like the age of the news cyborg has arrived.” It’s also very interesting because of who McCarthy is. Most of all it’s interesting because it’s an absolute dream job for any tech news junky. We discuss the hire in depth over on Jobwire, our site dedicated to covering new hires in tech and new media.
