(Please subscribe to the NextMarket Podcast in iTunes or download this episode directly).

For a while, there was probably no more prolific tech blogger than Marshall Kirkpatrick. HIs prodigious output at AOL, Techcrunch and finally ReadWriteWeb was amazing to behold, and he owed much of his success to systems he developed for early discovery of trends and technologies.

So when he announced he was leaving pro blogging to create a company that would help people discover emerging trends and information, it wasn’t all that surprising. 

Marshall and I talk about his years as a pro blogger, his decision to leave blogging, his search for funding and his decision to reach out to Mark Cuban, lessons learned since starting Little Bird and his observations on the tech media landscape.
