Mike Isaac will cover the social web and its biggest players, including Facebook, Twitter and Google.

He comes to All Things Digital most recently as a staff writer from Wired, where, among many other things, he spent most of his time writing about Google’s mobile and social efforts.

From 2010 to 2012, his coverage at WIRED included the decline and fall of HP’s mobile empire, Google’s surprise acquisition of Motorola Mobility and Facebook’s steady trudge towards IPO-hood.

Previous to that, he wrote on the business of tech for Forbes magazine and Forbes.com, with a particular emphasis on startups and social. His work has also appeared in Paste Magazine, Performer Magazine, DNR Magazine and The Washington Examiner.

Mr. Isaac holds a degree in English Literature from the University of California at Berkeley, and is a former Georgetown University journalism fellow.

Here is a statement of my ethics and coverage policies. It is more than most of you want to know, but, in the age of suspicion of the media, I am laying it all out.

There’s really very little to say. I own no shares of any companies — public or private — nor do I intend to purchase any. Like any good employee saving for retirement, I’ve invested in a Fidelity 401k, the funds of which are managed and spread across any number of companies without my express knowledge or input. I don’t invest in any tech-specific funds.

While I may do the occasional speaking engagement or media appearance, I am never paid for my time, nor do I accept free gifts, travel or hotel arrangements for any of my appearances. I’m not a consultant to any of the companies I cover (or any at all, for that matter).

Beyond these disclosures, I also abide by the Dow Jones Code of Conduct, which can be found here.
