The Washington Post today announces it will launch a new blog called ‘The Switch’ on July 29 which will focus on technology policy and feature in-depth news, analysis and insight on issues like NSA surveillance, patent trolls, broadband networks, and much more. Post tech writer Tim Lee will anchor the blog with support from new hires Andrea Peterson and Brian Fung. In addition to the regular bloggers, The Switch will feature contributions from The Post’s current tech reporters: Cecilia Kang, Craig Timberg and Hayley Tsukayama.
“The tech industry and Washington are more entwined now than ever before. The Post is uniquely positioned to cover this evolving relationship, helping users understand the hot button issues and how they might be affected by changing policies,” said Greg Schneider, National Economy and Business Editor at The Post.
