VALLEYWAG, the latest Nick Denton blog, is up. It focuses on Silicon Valley and the tech industry. Check it out, if those interest you. And why wouldn't they?

UPDATE: A reader suggests, correctly, that the growth of sites like this one -- or FuckedCompany -- is another example of the Army of Davids effect, for good and for ill -- the ability of people inside companies to share their stories with each other, and the world, when in the past the dirt involved wouldn't have gotten past the water cooler. I've actually got a section on that in the book, which was inspired, appropriately enough, by some comments of Nick Denton's.

ANOTHER UPDATE: With just a little modification, Nick could use these commercials! (Via Ed Cone, who's wondering why this song is going through his head today. I blame Nick.)
