A catch phrase will go here soon.

Finding a replacement for Veronica


As many folks found out this week (including myself!) Veronica is moving on to do two new projects, the first is [ TKTKKTKTKTKTK ] and the second is [ TKTKTKTKKT TKTKKT with TKKTKTKTKT ].*

Veronica really pushed herself to try new things with Mahalo daily as she stated on her blog, but she told me she wanted to stay in San Francisco (as opposed to commuting to LA every other week) and she wanted to work on just tech stuff. Mahalo Daily is like 20% tech, so that’s obviously not a fit.

We wish her the best and we move on. Monday we will announce some of the plans we have for the show and replacing Veronica (some of you heard a little bit of it in the Jason Calacanis USTREAM channel today, and on my Twitter account).

Bottom line: the show will go on, and we’re going to be looking to develop some new talent. We’ve been getting a couple of emails every hour about the open position and we’re really excited about what’s next.

* Note: I’ve been given a preview of her plans, but I can’t say what she’s up to next. Sorry! :-)

    [...] then if you’re Jason Calacanis you’re going to be frothing at the mouth as you hunt up a replacement for Veronica since she actually proved she is as smart as she looks and left Mahalo for something – well [...]

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.
