Technology journo Asher Moses resigns from Fairfax Media

AsherFairfax Media’s technology editor Asher Moses has resigned to take up a communications role with the consumer lobby group the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN).

Moses has been with Fairfax for the last seven years and technology editor for last four years.

“The decision to move on was extremely difficult”, said Moses.

“It has been an honour being one of the dwindling few who can earn a decent crust from writing about what they love. Journalism is the only work I’ve done since I began writing paid freelance articles at 14. But now is the time for me to branch out and see what else I’m capable of.”

He will start the new role with ACCAN next month and said he was excited about the new role.

“I have always been interested in the impact of new technologies on consumers and this role gives me the opportunity to play an active role in the development of consumer rights,” he said.

“I’m excited to be taking up the ACCAN role at a time when we are ever closer to a networked society… I will look back on my time at Fairfax as some of the most rewarding, exciting years of my life.”

“I can’t speak highly enough about the journalists at Fairfax. It has been a privilege to work beside them and witness their sheer passion and determination in the face of what have been a stomach churning past few years.”

Moses was the winner of the Walkley Young Australian Online Journalist of the Year in 2008 and 2011.
