New-ish pastures

New-ish pastures

You may have picked this up elsewhere, but here’s a brief announcement for mbites readers. I am the new Editor of TechCrunch UK & Ireland. Some may know that I helped launch the site for the first time late last year. I also resigned after what I perceived at the time to be unnecessary editorial interference from the US site in a UK editorial issue. It’s hard to explain it all now, but all I can say is, hell, you had to be there…

However, after a long “time out” I am back again and happy to say that TechCrunch has decided to show its firm commitment to this market and to editorial independence. For my part, it�??s great to be editing the site and I want people to be re-assured that TechCrunch UK & Ireland is here to stay.

The other sites I have been working on recently – including – remain personal projects, but I will do all my ‘news breaking’ and heavy blogging about the Web 2.0, tech and startups business on TechCrunchUKI. I’ll also be contributing to TechCrunch US.
