Lockhart Steele, Gawker Media’s Managing Editor, is posting on ValleyWag.
In one post on Nicholas Butterworth, Steele addresses the cultural differences between Silicon Alley and Silicon Valley.

(If they do either, they aren’t admitting it.) And the sine qua non press hit for your new webtacular isn’t a TechCrunch profile; it’s a story in the Times’ Sunday Styles section.
