From CJR to AOL, Wired to Guardian, and beyond …

Here’s a selection of the most intriguing career status updates we covered this week in the Muck Rack Daily.

Columbia Journalism Review's editor-in-chief Cyndi Stivers is now editor-in-chief of AOL.com. Stivers has also made her mark at such publications as Entertainment Weekly and Time Out New York. She tweets, “So excited to join Chris Grosso, Francis Lobo, Susan Lyne and the gang at AOL. Thanks for the good wishes, everybody!” New York Times business columnist David Carr tweets, “The puzzle palace just added some big smarts.”

Spencer Ackerman is the Guardian's new National Security Editor—that's today's big job news making the rounds on Twitter. Ackerman tweets, “Thanks, everyone, for all the kind words. I had no idea Twitter could be so nice.” Previously a senior writer at Wired, he then goes on to list a litany of thank yous to former colleagues: “Sappiness: I’ve been privileged to work w @dangerroom @mat @laura_hudson @kimzetter @redgirlsays @bobmcmillan @cademetz @kpoulsen@arikia…” Washington Post and Bloomberg News blogger Ezra Klein jokingly references Ackerman’s handletweeting, “Time for @attackerman to change his name to guardianman.”

Matt Lynley of the Wall Street Journal and Mariah Summers of the Financial Times Groups’ “FundFire” are Buzzfeed's two latest hires for its expanding business news section. Lynley tweets about the move, “Very excited to work with@mariahjsummers@sapnam and @peterlauria3 on @buzzfeed's new business section” adding a “√+” to show his approval. “So thrilled to be joining … the BuzzFeed Business team!!!” Summers tweets in agreement. Editor-in-chief Ben Smith tweets, “So psyched about @peterlauria3's nascent biz team,” adding, “Esp Mariah, who really needs some followers.” That shouldn't be too hard to accomplish, with a shout-out like that to Smith's audience of more than 140,000! Also, there's still one more job to fill in their section, according to Buzzfeed Biz editor Peter Lauria, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Roll Call's masthead has seen a lot of shake-ups this week. First, politics reporter Jonathan Strong tweeted this big news: “I’m pleased to announce I’m headed to National Review as a political reporter.” “Let the hazing begin!” tauntingly tweetsJonah Goldberg, NR columnist. Strong replies, “haha do your worst!” 

Their associate politics editor David Drucker is moving on, too—to Senior Congressional Correspondent at theWashington Examiner. “Thanks so much to all who offered such kind words on my move to the @dcexaminer,” Druckertweets@RollCall has been amazing,but I’m excited abt what’s next.” Emily Heil tweets, “Welcome to the @rollcall Alumni Club, @davidmdrucker! You’l learn the secret handshake soon.”

Josh Rogin and Eli Lake are the twosome teaming up to cover foreign policy and national security for the The Daily Beast. Rogin comes from Foreign Policy where he worked as a senior staff writer, while Lake hails from Newsweek where he was senior national security reporter. Wired's national security reporter Spencer Ackerman tweets, “With @EliLake &@joshrogin together, they should rename it Daily Beastmode.” “The daily beastie boys,” adds Al-Monitor’s foreign policy reporter Laura Rozen. “That Just Happened,” Lake tweets in the wake of the news. Buzzfeed’s editor-in-chief Ben Smithnods in their direction that the duo is “going to be a killer combo.”

Make This Awesome ‘33 Ways to Stay Creative’ List a Part of Your Life- Liz Dwyer posted in Education, Creativity and Lists
This list pops up on the web every few months—the Steampunk group on Facebook is the latest to share. What would happen if most people followed its recommendations instead of just clicking “like”? How would our society change if schools posted these and then operated accordingly? (Caveat for the kids: We’d have to nix “drink coffee”!) Of course the best thing about lists is crossing things off of them, so c’mon, let’s commit to putting some of these suggestions into practice.
