Eric Eldon

Eric Eldon is a journalist who likes to work on newfangled media projects.

He was most recently the co-editor of technology site TechCrunch, joining in late 2011 during a tumultuous time. He helped rebuild the publication’s editorial staff, traffic, news focus, conference business, and some other stuff over the following two years.

Before that, he was the co-founder and editor of Inside Network. The company provides a network of publications and research products about technology topics, and was acquired by MediaBistro in mid-2011.

He first got into tech journalism by way of VentureBeat, a TechCrunch rival. He was the first employee, and hired and edited much of the original team.

Eric attended Stanford University and received an international relations undergraduate degree in 2005. While there, he reported and edited news for The Stanford Daily student newspaper, and ran its business for a year-long term.

He also attempted a tech-media startup after college, that offered a workflow and online product for newsrooms and other groups of writers. It didn’t work out, but he still thinks it was ahead of its time, despite a variety of other issues that ultimately ended it.
