Leaving the journalism fold for the wider world of data and software. The software and IT world appears to be teeming with jobs that, for the most part, pay more (sometimes much much more) and are often more secure. Has anyone else contemplated making that jump? Some journalists started out in that world before making their way into the media; what is that change like? Is there a better or worse way to go about thinking about switching industries? How would an interested party pursue it?
