Om Malik Steps Away From Day-to-Day Journalism

Om Malik:

Living a 24-hour news life has come at a personal cost. I still wake in middle of the night to check the stream to see if something is breaking, worrying whether I missed some news.

It is a unique type of addiction that only a few can understand, and it is time for me to opt out of this non-stop news life. After five years as a “venture partner,” I am joining True Ventures as a partner, and thus bringing an end to my life as a professional journalist.

As a friend, I’m happy for him. As a reader, I’m going to miss seeing his byline.
