According to the Guardian, serial entrepreneur Jason Calacanis plans to launch a new tech blog in early 2011. With this project, Calacanis is going into direct competition with TechCrunch, the influential Silicon Valley-based blog run by Calacanis’s old nemesis Mike Arrington. According to the report, Calacanis plans to hire a small number of editors (possibly four). These writers will have to be free them to research stories deeply and will only have to file one story per week. Calacanis will also host a new startup conference that will challenge TechCrunch’s highly successful Disrupt conference.
