Goodbye to Greenberg

Herb Greenberg, a veteran financial journalist, is leaving MarketWatch, the WSJ-affiliated website where he has long had a blog and made a good deal of creative fuss.

I'll miss him, although I understand he will continue to make television appearances in his usual venue, CNBC. Still, this will be one less blog whence I can steal story ideas. The tube just isn't the same. This'll leave me that much more reliant on Felix Salmon, Greg Newton, Ellen Podgor, and other remaining crystals amongst the salts of the earth.

Greenberg is moving on to found, with a friend, a new research firm, which will be known as GreenbergMeritz Research & Analytics. (Way to get first billing on the office door!)

Best of luck to them.

Knowledge is warranted belief -- it is the body of belief that we build up because, while living in this world, we've developed good reasons for believing it. What we know, then, is what works -- and it is, necessarily, what has worked for us, each of us individually, as a first approximation.
