Self proclaimed Motorola Atrix lover, former Editor in Chief at Engadget, and co-founder of This Is My Next and The Verge, (wow that’s a lot) Joshua Topolsky is adding a print column to his hectic schedule.
Poynter reports that Joshua Topolsky, the guys some of us Android Enthusiasts used to love to hate, is now penning a technology column weekly at The Washington Post. In addition the Washington Post is going to aggregate content from Topolsky’s latest venture with SBS media, A Washington DC based company, The Verge.

“The Verge offers a wealth of ideas, fresh perspective and experience in covering technology issues,” said Greg Schneider, national economy and business editor, The Washington Post. “This collaboration adds their expertise to The Washington Post’s robust coverage of technology policy and company trends.”
Topolsky is Jimmy Fallon’s go to tech guy on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon”. As we all know Topolsky, and his crew of talented tech journalists left AOL owned Engadget to start this new project. The Washington Post, one of the premiere newspapers still alive in the United States was able to strike a content deal with The Verge before the site has even launched. Topolsky and his team that will be producing The Verge are temporarily shacked up at Thisismynext.com
Topolsky said in a press release:
“As we seek to build the premier brand in technology media, we can think of no better or more appropriate partner than The Washington Post, one of journalism’s greatest brands and institutions,” and added “I am looking forward to sharing my passion for technology with The Washington Post’s broad readership at a time when the cultural influence and accessibility of personal technology has never been greater.”
