A New Angle on Silicon Valley


Well-known pundit and entrepreneur John Furrier has a new blog called siliconANGLE, which went live yesterday and which he said will be a “collaboration blog for friends and colleagues.”

The site will cover the social Web and also tech trends, but Furrier (pictured here) said it will try for “deeper” analysis of the news.

Furrier–who founded and once ran the PodTech online video start-up–said he will be hiring a full-time blogger soon, and contributors will be vetted by him.

In an email to BoomTown last night, Furrier said: “This is an open blog project designed to attract smart quality people that want to blog without the hassles of blogging–it’s about quality opinion and analysis a collaborative approach. The longer term goal it to develop an audience to create a collaborative research model.”

Here is his post about the new effort on his Furrier.org site, where he has been blogging regularly most recently.

And here is Furrier’s inaugural post on siliconANGLE.

I, for one, am hoping for some well-written sharp-cornered posts from Furrier and those he manages to assemble on the continuing circus of Silicon Valley.

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
