Mike Arrington launches CrunchNotes

Mike Arrington, editor of TechCrunch and a partner in Archimedes Ventures, has launched a second blog – CrunchNotes.

In Mikes words:

So, why am I starting CrunchNotes? The main reason is that I find that sometimes, I want to talk about more than just new companies and products. Sometimes I have something to say about what’s going on in the blogosphere or the world. Sometimes I want to link to something interesting another blogger has written, but which has nothing to do with new companies. I found that doing that on TechCrunch tends to dilute the core value of that blog.

And so I am starting CrunchNotes, a companion blog to TechCrunch. It’s a place that I can write about things that interest me but that doesn’t belong on TechCrunch.

Mike gave myself and Dave Winer a lot of kudos for helping him start in the world of Web 2.0. Thanks Mike. But I gotta say, you can drag a horse to water but you can’t make it drink. You did all the drinking yourself :-). I’m sure CrunchNotes is going to be a great place to hang out.
