Matt Marshall launched Venturebeat. He is going out on his own. This is a shinning example of the ‘new model’ of empowerment and Internet 2.0. Matt has always been a great producer of content covering the Venture and Silicon Valley business. I bumped into Matt when I first started PodTech and I was actively covering Silicon Valley and VCs (soon I hope to get back to doing that again). He’s a talent and very good reporter. I’m looking forward to working with Matt when we launch our upcoming business channels on PodTech.
