on the new Valleywag 2.0, owner/temporary substitute blogger Nick Denton sez Valleywag will "tone down the personal coverage of civilians because... their personal lives aren't that interesting".
hmm... wrong & wrong.
Nick's take on the valley was different from TechCrunch, VentureBeat, GigaOm, or anyone else in the Geek-o-sphere. in addition to some real hard tech news reporting & dirt-digging, Nick's coverage of Silicon Valley personalities was fun & addictive. turns out geek voyeurism has at least as much of an audience as the product & money reporting. who knew.
Valleywag was refreshingly frank, surprisingly insightful, and very, very unrepentant. i'm sure wherever Nick ends up next will have a similar rebellious feel. i'm looking forward to signing up as a daily reader for the new gig, whatever it might be...
