TechWire Send-off

My editor at WRAL TechWire retired at the end of December after more than 20 years on the tech beat and a career that began in 1966. Amazing.

As Tom Snyder, Executive Director of RIoT, said in his TechWire column today, “Journalistic data is at the heart of economic development. The more local journalists we have, and the more local stories that are told, the stronger our economic development engine becomes.”

Thanks to Rick for his years of sharing stories and supporting emerging tech in the Triangle.
