nytThis should get interesting. Gary Rivlin, a correspondent here in the Bay Area for the New York Times, tells us he is starting a regular venture capital column for the Times: Every 4th Friday, starting June 10.

Why interesting? Because Rivlin carries a sharp sword. One start-up veteran once confided to us: “Whenever Rivlin writes, he leaves bloody tracks….The biggest favor he ever did was to not include our company in his write-up”

This is part of the NYT’s overall Biz Day redesign — they’re beefing up Fridays to include more coverage of institutional money, including Rivlin’s column.

Anyway, it’s good to have company as a venture capital reporter here in the valley. Stay tuned…
