Valleywag: New view, new voice, new vavoom

So after having my own little Nick Douglas is out at Valleywag snark attack on a guy from NY coming in to help the thing till local talent is secured, I have to say Nick Denton’s version of Valleywag is not only nicely grown up–it is irrestible.
Where Nick Douglas was college boy snarky, sniggering or cute, Denton as writer seems to have the assidious truffle-hunting, old files rummaging obsessiveness of the best journalists, but with the slightly chillier perspective of a lawyer, banker or economist.
It’s going to be interesting to see how the new Valleywag impacts Techcrunch.
Mike Arrington,s got his own voice with a focus on new companies, trends, and deep dives into sectors, Nick’s take on SV is economic, dry, and right on focus, digging into the heart of news stories for the tastier core.
Yes, Denton rocks n this latest turn–and he gets a big wet kiss(only virtual) for showing everyone he can not only kickstart it, he can turn it turn it out.
Nick, hire somebody as incisive as you to write Valleywag, please.
