WSJD Launch Event

On Thursday, February 6, 2014, technorati from San Francisco and Silicon Valley gathered at Tank18 in the SoMa district of San Francisco to celebrate the launch of WSJD, the new home for technology news, analysis, commentary, daily buzz and consumer-product reviews. Oversized logos were artfully hand-drawn on the venue’s chalk walls, freestanding branded banners anchored the room and DJ Dylan Mahoney provided the soundtrack for the festivities.

The Wall Street Journal’s Executive Editor Almar Latour welcomed attendees and introduced WSJ Global Technology Editor Jonathan Krim and featured guest, venture capitalist, author and entrepreneur Ben Horowitz. Krim and Horowitz discussed Horowitz’s upcoming book release, along with topics including the lack of women in executive tech positions, CEO leadership tips, job selection biases and the necessary focus on community efforts.

Guests were then given the opportunity to have their digital stipple created as a keepsake at The Wall Street Journal Stipple Station.
