TechCrunch scored a big coup in grabbing star blogger MG Siegler from Venture Beat.  Siegler's boss Venture Beat boss Matt Marshall gave him a classy send-off.

MG, who is known to many from his personal blog ParisLemon, a prolific and accomplished tech writer.  With the recent hire of Sarah Lacy and now MG, Michael Arrington is building a formidable stable.

Last July at Stanford, I caught up with MG for this chat about live streaming news events and other trends.

Congrats, MG.

Update 4/12:  Here is Michael Arrrington's post welcoming MG.
