Two titans of the tech news sphere—The Verge and Re/code—will soon operate under the same umbrella. Re/code chiefs Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher announced yesterday that the site is being acquired by Vox Media, parent company of The Verge, and that it'll continue to operate independently under the new management.
One could be forgiven for wondering how the two publications will manage the apparent overlap in their missions. To that end, The Verge's editor-in-chief, Nilay Patel, has laid out a vision for how the new siblings will coexist. The Verge will focus on "mainstream lifestyle and technology" coverage, while Re/code will provide coverage of how "the money and business of technology works."
Re/code, formerly All Things D, will also continue to hold its annual Code conference. Vox Media says it may expand the site's conference chops to its other brands in the future.
