- Nick would like Valleywag to be a lot closer to Bambi Francisco on Marketwatch style financial investigative journalism
- He’s got a good eye for finding those kinds of items
- Given that the Valley has some journalists trolling away for these types of items (think VentureBeat, Matt Marshall, Tom Formeski, Good Morning Silicon Valley etc.), Nick’s take may be a bit, uh, redundant.
- And, of course there is the issue that Big Nick is writing this thing from 3,000 miles away, about people who he’s probably met in passing, once, like at a Ryze party back in the day.
Can items written with verve–but culled from press releases and blog posts–work for Valleywag?
I pray not.
Valleywag canned is too close to Valleywag spam. Yawn.
