Andrew Krucoff, the long-time Nick Denton cleaner (you know--the guy who brings in the hack-saws and bleach and gets rid of the bodies), has settled down into a regular gig at Gridskipper, an urban travel blog. It's been live for a couple of hours now, and I'm already poaching links--like this one to a guy who has set out to visit 1000 New York bars in 2005. I'm pretty sure me and Mr. One Thousand are going to become good friends.

Also: Media Bistro relaunched today for the fourth time, now featuring blogs by Elizabeth Spiers and Claire Zulkey.

Finally, is there some rule that the New York Times has to cover blogging each Sunday? Don't get us wrong, the idea of a battle royale between Elizabeth and Jessica is totally hot.
