Erica Ogg and Colleen Taylor join GigaOM


Erica OggWe have some good news for a slow news day. Erica Ogg, from CNET News, is joining the GigaOM team in about a week to head up our Apple coverage. I’ve known Erica for years, having first met her at a PR dinner when we both worked for CNET (now CBS Interactive). I quickly learned that she is a smart thinker, someone who looks at technology with a healthy curiosity as well as dose of skepticism to see how these innovations dreamed up by engineers will actually fit into people’s lives.

Erica is a reporter’s reporter, just the kind of writer we like to have here at GigaOM (check out the story she broke on a recent hacker attack against Sony). But she’s also very much a new media person, blending her smart perspective on tech, her love of mac ‘n’ cheese, and her enduring loyalty to the Dodgers on Twitter: @ericainsf.

Colleen TaylorAnd, while I’m at it, I’ll belatedly announce the addition of Colleen Taylor to our reporting team. Based in San Francisco, Colleen covers local startups and social media companies. A former reporter for the Financial Times’ Merger Market, Colleen is also an entrepreneur, having started two video-related businesses. About a week into her time here at GigaOM, she had already launched the elevator pitch video format. Follow her on Twitter: @loyalelectron.

We’re thrilled to have both Erica and Colleen on our team.



Welcome Erica and Colleen. I expect some great things from both of you, Especially Erica, You’ve got some big shoes to fill in at TAB. I’m hoping Darren will still be writing plenty of insightful articles, now that Erica will be heading up Apple coverage.

Nice pic of Erica.
Your Twitter credentials are all still CNET related btw.
Good luck! Maybe less women reporting on tech and more women in tech, but that’s for another day.
