Announcing TechCrunch UK

I am pleased to announce our latest Crunch Network blog – TechCrunch UK – which launched moments ago.

TechCrunch UK is obviously not a translated blog like TechCrunch France and TechCrunch Japan (although both of these blogs have lots of original content as well). Instead, TechCrunch UK is all about UK based and/or focused startups. Many of these startups are written about on TechCrunch, but quite a few either are too early or aren’t necessarily of interest to the main TechCrunch audience. TechCrunch UK is a place to read about these companies, and I look forward to many of them also eventually being profiled here at the main TechCrunch site.

The blog is being written by Sam Sethi, a London based entrepreneur. You can read more about Sam on the TechCrunch UK About page, here, or on his personal blog. I first met Sam back in May at a TechCrunch event we held in London. We immediately hit it off and have been conspiring to launch this blog ever since. I am honored to have someone of Sam’s caliber write for our network, and I look forward to his posts.

Sam’s already got his announcement post up, as well as news on Piczo (which is doing a UK press tour).

I also want to thank our London-based designer, Jeremy Baines, who’s done the design and coding work for TechCrunch UK, as well as CrunchGear. For those of you who’ve asked, we’ll be moving all of our sites over to this new design in the coming weeks.
