April Fools: Michael Kwan Gets Hired By The New York Times

April 1st, 2008 at 5:39 PM (16 years ago) by Matt Freedman

Michael Kwan announced today that he would cease to be a Freelance Writer, and would become a writer at The New York Times. He had this to say about his future work at the NYT:

As much as I enjoy the relative freedom of being a freelance writer, the opportunity was just too much to turn down. The New York Times has offered me a permanent full-time position as a technology columnist, focusing primarily on consumer electronics like the Apple iPhone, Asus Eee PC, and Nintendo Wii. I guess it helps when you leverage your reputation, because the NYT found me through my work on such sites as The TechZone, Mobile Magazine, and FutureLooks.

Sounds believable enough, but the NYT would never hire Michael I don’t think Michael would stop doing Freelance Writing for a newspaper job.
