David Pogue Leaves 'The New York Times' for Yahoo

In making the announcement on his blog, Pogue writes:

It’s true: After 13 years at the New York Times, I’ve accepted a new job.

Leaving The Times is a big deal. My years there coincided with the explosion of just about everything important in today’s tech — the Web, social media, e-books, smartphones, tablets, duck-faced selfies. It’s been an amazing ride.

Two points about Pogue’s departure from the NYT:

  1. Christina Warren nails it — Pogue & Mossberg are institutions.
  2. John Gruber’s questions are good ones. Who does replace Pogue?

Great hire by Marissa Mayer; looking forward to what comes of Pogue’s new gig.
