Welcome To The Team, Sarah Lacy

I’d like to welcome Sarah Lacy to Team TechCrunch as a permanent addition to our editorial and writing team. Lacy, who was kind enough to write part time for us in February during my vacation, will continue to write Valley Girl, a biweekly column for BusinessWeek. She will also continue to co-host Tech Ticker on Yahoo Finance.

You can read Sarah’s previous posts on TechCrunch here. She’s starting on a new book on global entrepreneurship and will be traveling constantly for the next eighteen months. While away, she’ll meet with local startups and entrepreneurs and cover the most interesting ones here at TechCrunch. You can also expect a healthy dose of Sarah’s unique editorial style regularly as well.

Sarah is an absolutely terrific writer, never pulls punches and really gets Silicon Valley. We’re extremely lucky to have her join us, and I can’t wait to read her stuff.

You can follow Sarah on her personal blog and Twitter. Her first book, Once You’re Lucky, Twice You’re Good: The Rebirth of Silicon Valley and the Rise of Web 2.0, is available here.
