damn, that's amazing... ex-FIM/NewsCorp exec Heather Harde is taking the reins over at TechCrunch. the story was broken first by Om Malik, no stranger to Heather or FIM / News. other insights from Ben Metcalfe & Edgeio CEO Keith Teare (both of whom chose to use my pix of Heather ;)
mike: kudos to you for trading your CEO hat in exchange for a brighter TC future. bold move, and impressive hire.
heather: can't think of a tougher job than being mike's boss, but if anyone can do it You Da [wo]Man... ;)
to the rest of the bloggers & moguls out there... watch out. here's a team adding even more firepower to an already dominant new media empire. and perhaps a new-breed VC / incubator to boot? we'll see...
best of luck & full speed ahead!
