We are thrilled to announce the addition of two veteran reporters to The Information’s rapidly growing Weekend section. Abe Brown will be covering the nexus of power, technology and wealth as a senior reporter, and Arielle Pardes will be leading coverage of Silicon Valley people and culture as a reporter.
Abe arrives at The Information after more than a decade covering the world’s business titans at Forbes, most recently as a senior editor. For several years, he wrote and helped edit the Forbes Billionaires and Forbes 400 lists, documenting everything from moguls’ art collections to their amassing of cable networks. He was the first journalist to report on troubling corporate tactics at TikTok and Peter Thiel’s life after leaving Facebook’s board.
Abe is a graduate of Syracuse University and a former director for the American Society of Magazine Editors’ ASME Next program for young editors. He lives in Jersey City, NJ.
Before joining The Information, Arielle covered startups and Silicon Valley for Wired, where she wrote two cover stories and nearly a dozen long-form features for the magazine. Her work shaped conversations about tech’s great migration to Miami, the emerging class of Gen Z venture capitalists and the pandemic lives of Silicon Valley’s service workers. She was the first to describe ephemera like “selfie museums,” and has broken news about companies including Instagram, Reddit and Twitter.
Before working at Wired, Arielle was a senior editor at Vice in Los Angeles. She studied philosophy and gender studies at the University of Pennsylvania. She lives in Berkeley, Calif.
