Find AOL Tech Around the World

(Engadget Expand in San Francisco)

AOL's Tech properties, Engadget and TechCrunch, are headed offline and going global. We are excited to announce that Engadget Expand is going to New York City and TechCrunch Disrupt is heading overseas to Beijing, China, as we continue to bring engaging experiences both online and off.

Engadget Expand, which debuted this past March in San Francisco, is coming to New York City's Javits Center on November 9th and 10th. This event will bring together tech luminaries and Engadget editors for two days of exciting conversation, new inventors and gadget fans -- for the ultimate immersive technology experience.

While Engadget takes over NYC, TechCrunch will be making waves in Beijing this fall, bringing Disrupt back to China. TechCrunch is partnering with one of the top tech blogs and event groups in China, TechNode, and will launch the official Chinese-language version of TechCrunch later this year. The Chinese edition will carry translations of posts from the U.S. site.

Cyndi Stivers Joins AOL as Editor-In-Chief of AOL.com

It's my pleasure to announce that AOL has hired Cyndi Stivers, a decorated journalist and digital media expert, to join our team as Editor-in-Chief of AOL.com.

In her new role reporting to me, she will drive all editorial and programming across the AOL homepage, all associated apps and syndicated feeds.

She joins us from the Columbia Journalism Review, where she was the Editor-in-Chief. Her award-winning resume prior to that includes senior editorial and management roles with Entertainment Weekly, Martha Stewart Omnimedia, Time Out New York, and Premiere.

There were many characteristics that cemented Cyndi as our top choice including her programming vision, a strong creative track record, and a knack for mentoring editorial talent.

As we evolve AOL.com as a content destination, we will look to Cyndi to ensure the site showcases the most compelling stories relevant to our viewers and drive a distinctive editorial voice. We'll also be relying on her creativity to help us ignite our live programming and add more opportunities for visitors to engage with each other around our content.

Susan Lyne, CEO of AOL's Brand Group, has worked with Cyndi twice before. In her words: "I know first hand that Cyndi will bring world-class editorial leadership and creative thinking to this role with AOL.com. Our entire stable of brands will benefit from her management of the homepage's reach to help drive network wide events to showcase everything AOL has to offer."

"Adding a talent like Cyndi to the AOL.com team is an exciting moment for our brand," says Francis Lobo, President of AOL Services Group. "Her expertise will ensure we continue to provide compelling content and experiences to the millions of people that enjoy AOL.com."

Cyndi will start in early June- please join me in welcoming Cyndi to the AOL family.
