Marshall Kirkpatrick leaves TechCrunch, shares secrets
Marshall Kirkpatrick has been the editor over at TechCrunch for the last six months, but now leaves to do consultant work and such. It sure doesn’€™t seem to be any hard feelings between Marshall and Mike Arrington, they only have nice things to say about each other.
Natali Del Conte is replacing Marshall by the way. Check out the CrunchNotes post for a brief introduction.
Anyway, when leaving TechCrunch, Marshall has decided to share his secrets for obtaining good news leads. While it sounds big and powerful, it’€™s basically just his techniques for reading RSS feeds, but still it’€™s worth a read if you want to know how he kept up to date with the news.
Thord Daniel Hedengren is a designer, writer, and blogger, and also the former editor of The Blog Herald. He used to be a hotshot in the gaming industry in Sweden, but sold everything and went International. Most recently he wrote a book called Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog, and does loads of kickass design.
You know .. that’s the first time I ever heard of that Original Signal site … (should I be embarrassed about my lack of web-2.0’ism?) I probably have 75% of those feeds individually in my Bloglines anyway.. but I rarely read them unless I’m really bored or extremely caught up. So yes .. I snagged a few group RSS feeds from there ..
