Dear readers: Please don't overreact. Valleywag 2009 will have the exact same headcount as Valleywag 2007 — but an order of magnitude more readers. Owen Thomas will run the site all by himself, with me dropping in to blog once in a while. If anything, Owen (photo, left) will be meaner than before. Just look at this week.Facebook investor Peter Thiel got outed — not just as gay, but a gay who opposes immigration. Sun cofounder Bill Joy got taken in the Manhattan real-estate market. Author Sarah Lacy got a taste of her own medicine. And President Change dumped both radio and Twitter. But no one got mauled like America's CTO, Google boss Eric Schmidt. Worst of all for those guys: They're all fair game for Owen when the new Valleywag debuts.
