Changes to Our Beat Coverage

We’ve renamed some of the story channels that organize our site.

Sep 19, 2014

As technology changes, our coverage changes with it. To better reflect the stories we’re publishing now, we’ve renamed some of the story channels that organize our site.

We’re combining the Web and Communications channels into one called Mobile. It will encompass nearly all of what we’ve been writing about in Web and Communications, including stories on new devices, online services, and Internet delivery technologies. If you subscribed to the Web or Communications newsletter, we’ll now send you one called Mobile, unless you tell us otherwise.

We’re also bringing back a channel devoted to Materials. Some of the most promising technologies in energy, biomedicine, and computing are at their heart dependent on new materials (or novel ways of using existing ones). Our expertise on that subject is one of the things that sets MIT Technology Review apart from other publications, and we’re ramping up coverage of Materials as a specific beat.

As always, thanks for reading.
