The Wall Street Journal’s tech journalist, Walt Mossberg explains the thrill of writing about technology and how lucky he feels to be a journalist in this space. He describes the joy he gets out of writing about a new, innovative product/service that a small company or startup developed and the impact his pieces can have. Although Mossberg mentions he has had the experience of writing about national security, international economics, the environment and energy – which he has enjoyed – he shares that he has chiefly loved being a tech writer. It has provided him the opportunity to meet people at companies large and small and introduce or explain their products/services to the world. For this, he touts, he feels lucky.
