Marshall Kirkpatrick is back!

Richard MacManus announced that Kirkpatrick is joining the team full time as their lead news writer.

Per MacManus, “I’m very pleased to announce that Marshall Kirkpatrick is joining Read/WriteWeb as a Lead Writer, starting this Monday. Marshall teams up with Josh Catone in this role, meaning that Read/WriteWeb now has three daily writers…Marshall will focus on breaking news for Read/WriteWeb, something he is very skilled at and which will complement Josh and I well.”

I’m a fan of Marshall’s style and it’s good to have his insight to help dissect and assess the good and the bad through the escalating volume of web news.

Good friend Vic Podcaster of HotfromSiliconValley fame is working on his very own startup. StartupNewz hasn’t officially launched yet, but it appears that you can request an invite to participate in the private beta.

It’s basically a dedicated Digg for startup news that becomes the platform for people to discover new companies. It opens up the news game, allowing the crowds to also publish startup news and vote on the most popular stories.

Seems like this may have legs as the appetite for startup news isn’t satisfied and by putting people in control of publishing startup news, we may indeed see more interesting information outside of the usual memes out there.

Although the party was still in full swing, Via Osgood‘s night was coming to a close, yet she was able to round up the folks from MediaTemple and Goowy to talk about what’s in store for them, and whether or not Bono really was hanging out with the Twiistup crew.
