Katie Rosman of WSJ's Personal Journal is joining the publication's technology team, charged with reporting on stories where tech and life meet, with an emphasis on 3-D printing, wearable gadgets, and similar subjects. Rosman first joined the Journal in 2004, previously a freelancer for such venerated pubs as the New Yorker and the New York Times. She also wrote a poignant bestselling memoir If You Knew Suzy, chronicling the loss of her mother to cancer.
"As proud of me as my mom would be, my kids are prouder," Rosman tweeted, remembering her mother in the midst of recognizing the move. "They think I can fire people now (I can't) and that's the ultimate to them."
"If you are into tech and not yet following @katierosman, you are amiss," WSJ business editor Dennis Berman admonished. "She's just joined the WSJ tech team and is one of the best."
"I think @katierosman was made to cover the life+tech mash-up," deputy technology editor Brian Fitzgerald harmonized. "She is always culturally relevant. Excited she's joining @WSJ tech team."
Film features writer Rachel Wortman summarized these sentiments in the simplest way possible: "Technology + life = @katierosman."
