I’ve moved to a new home, and hope you will come with me

Just a heads up that I’m starting a new job as editor-in-chief of ReadWrite, a tech site formerly known as ReadWriteWeb. We have rebranded the site as ReadWrite and launched it yesterday with a new design and a new approach to covering tech news. Meaning: more personality, more engagement, more fun.

This is not going to be Fake Steve 2.0 because, alas, Fake Steve has left the building. But it will give me a place where I can write the kind of stuff I want to write, with loads of freedom and with a small group of like-minded souls. ReadWrite has a really good staff of writers, and we’re going to be adding more voices to the mix. I’m looking for interesting, thought-provoking ideas, so send them along.

My idea is that journalism needs to become more about conversation than publication. As Arianna Huffington likes to say (in her strange accent) “Self-expression is the new entertainment.” So look — come along with me on this adventure and express yourselves. Become part of ReadWrite. Add your voice to the conversation.

For those of you who are still hanging around from the Fake Steve days, first of all, Namaste, and second of all, Let’s put the band back together. We have a platform where we can do some of the things we did on Fake Steve, like create a sense of community and add a touch of irreverence to the world of tech. Now more than ever the Valley is in need of a bracing, no-bullshit shot of truth, and we are the ones to deliver it. Especially now that Michael Arrington and MG Siegler, the herpes of tech journalism (they keep going away and coming back) are now returning to TechCrunch, which is going to raise the bullshit barrage and general douchebaggery of tech coverage.

As for me, I’ve been cooped up in dying newsweekly for the last four years, and I’ve been miserable. But now I feel like I’ve been sprung from prison and given permission to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting world. I can’t wait. I hope you’ll come along and have some fun.

    Currently it appears like WordPress is the preferred blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep
    a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
    moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

    Internet marketing has become a complicated
    discipline that involves a great deal of theoretical knowledge in combination with applied techniques.
    If you do not develop this skill, you are going
    to find yourself stuck in thousands of half finished projects and an IM venture that won’t
    ever be a success. Regularly improve and update your products
    to enable you build a solid connection with your customers.

    Humanity may not find it easy to eat what ancestors ate, but
    remember old is gold and will always remain no, no matter what
    is the era. Unlike most fruit and vegetable coconut contains saturated fats.

    Starchy vegetables are also good for being rich in good carbohydrates.

    When I originally commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from
    now on whenever a comment is added I get 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
