Top Writers Move to Startups

I thought it was interesting to learn on the same day that both Robert Scoble, the pre-eminent Microsoft blogger, and Om Malik, the top writer at Business 2.0, were leaving their positions to join startup companies.

Robert Scoble will join venture-backed podtech.net (I first learned about them when they did a great interview of Paul Ahlstrom from vSpring a few months back) and Om Malik has received funding from True Ventures, a San Francisco venture fund. Jon Callaghan, one of the CMGI venture guys who invested in MyFamily.com in 1998, is with the fund and will be on the board of Om’s new company Gigaom. Cool name.
