Marshall Kirkpatrick Joins SplashCast

SplashCast, an online media publishing company, has informed us that former TechCrunch writer Marshall Kirkpatrick will join the company as director of content.

Kirkpatrick reviewed the service in November. He will now be responsible for SplashCast’s overall media strategy.

“For the past few weeks I’ve been planning on working independently but the combination of SplashCast’s technology, team, vision and the job they want me to do was irresistible,” Kirkpatrick told us. “I think the company is going to be a real game-changer and I’m super excited to be a part of it.”

Splashcast allows users to publish video, photos, audio and text via RSS feeds to a skinless Flash player. The service will officially launch in January but the beta player will be available within the next few weeks.

Congratulations, SplashCast, on getting such a great talent.
