Update: Yahoo is getting pretty serious about this whole content thing. First they hire Kevin Sites, then they go ahead and hire a bunch of financial columnists. And now they are looking to add some more depth to their editorial team. They just posted two listings for tech editors here“and here. In other words, they are going after Tech News sites. They have been poaching some people off News.com. Psss.. Mr. Yahoo, if you are looking to hire someone, this is your man. Another recommendation: Jackson, who sent me these links in the first place.

  1. Okay, so I’m not a libertarian like every other techie, but a little love for a dude who passed those links along to you?

  3. Alternatively, drop me a resume if you’re interested in any of the positions above. The team is awesome, the project is treated as start-up, you get to build a brand new site from ground zero, and Yahoo! campus in Sunnyvale has free espressos.

  4. Om, thanks for the mention but I already have a job and who would want to drag themselves all the way down to Sunnyvale every day? Have you been there? It’s almost San Jose! Brrr! Plus the Yahoo campus is packed to the gills and they are trying to squeeze 700 more jobs in there. If Yahoo opened an SF campus that would give them a significant advantage over their rivals. imho.

    By Tom Foremski for SiliconValleyWatcher There has been much chatter about Yahoo’s renewed efforts to become a content producer. My good buddy Om Malik, at GigaOm, even proposed that I help them out. I’m happy to help out with some advice, and that i…

  6. I’m touched, Om, thanks. And, um, Alex, you’ll be hearing from me…

    That said, SVW is a great blog, and Tom does great work.

    (also, I have nothing against libertarians, personally)

  7. If I were Yahoo, I’d be beating down John Paczkowski’s door. In fact, I’d offer him both positions. No disrespect to Tom or Om, but Good Morning Silicon Valley is really one of the best technology news sites around. Paczkowski is a great writer and an astute observer of tech. I find his insights invaluable and his irrevence and humor enormously enjoyable.

    This sounds like a love letter, I know. But honestly, I’d rather read GMSV than the WSJ.

  8. Gotta agree with Dave on this one. GMSV is a must-read if you’re in technology. My guess is it won’t be long before the NYT, the WSJ, or even the FT snag Paczkowski. He’s got a great style, lots of interesting opinions and he doesn’t take BS from anyone. Such a refreshing break from the Markoffs and Mossbergers of the world. GMSV and Om are really the only two tech news outlets I pay attention to anymore.
