Munch, Munch, More Crunch: Now It's CrunchGear

Posted by: Rob Hof on August 10, 2006

TechCrunch’s Mike Arrington has sure been busy. Tonight he debuted yet another site, CrunchGear, a new gadget blog headed by former Gizmodo editor John Biggs. As Mike describes it:

Expect CrunchGear to look like something between a pure blog and CNET Reviews. Our goal isn’t just to let you know about the hot new stuff coming out soon, but to also help you decide what kind of camera, laptop or MP3 player you want to buy as well.

Seems like I’m writing about a new TechCrunch site every few days. What’s up with that? Find out in my next post.

Seems like Mike has given up on living on the edge (Edgeio)? Philosophically and in reality? He is definitely smart and doing the right thing to expand the brand, but I can't imagine him working on Edgeio much. The irony of it is that all these centrally produced content is against the investment thesis of Edgeio (value comes from gathering content from the long tail/edge and not from producing it at major user destinations). Crunchboard is not a competitor to Edgeio(job section), but it does show that he (seems) to believe that value can be extracted better at the core than at the edge.. . and thus he is spending more time with the Crunch brand . . .
