New Yorker

Parent company Conde Nast may still think the web is not that important, but The New Yorker does. The 87-year-old magazine decided to make a “big investment” in its website six to eight months ago, Nicholas Thompson, editor of, says. The web team was expanded to 12 full-time employees, including Thompson, who was named editor in March after working “on the magazine side” as a senior features editor for two years. Editor-in-chief David Remnick thought he would be a good fit for the website in part because he had a background in technology coverage, having spent five years as a senior editor at Wired, Thompson says.
