Meet Jordan Novet, who will be covering cloud computing and big data for us, from our San Francisco office. Jordan will focus on ways that the cloud — and our ability to grab, store and analyze massive amounts of data — is changing not only our infrastructure but also how businesses operate. Jordan has already been on the job for about a month; you can see a sample of what he’s been writing here, here and here.
Jordan grew up in New York City and went to college at the University of Missouri. Before joining GigaOM, he spent two years as a business reporter at the Bulletin newspaper in Bend, Ore., where he covered two things near and dear to developers’ hearts: beer and data centers. You can reach him at [email protected]
Jordan will be working closely with the other members of our stellar cloud and data team: Derrick Harris, who loves big data and think pieces on the intersection of data and policy, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other topics; Barb Darrow, who covers the big companies in cloud and the traditional enterprise companies (as well as some startups in Boston, where she’s based); and Stacey Higginbotham, who has begun to transition into a new beat — the internet of things — but who still writes stories here and there about software-defined networks and physical infrastructure.
