Oliver Starr leaves MobileCrunch. In a comment, the blogger explained why.

“Michael asked me to stop writing MobileCrunch after I agreed to accept a position as Senior Mobile Analyst for Chris Shipley’s Guidewire Group as Mike feels that TechCrunch and Guidewire are competitive concerns. I had every intention of continuing as the author of MobileCrunch and was sincerely disappointed that Michael chose to make the decision he had.”

“I have put over a year of my life into building up the readership and content at MobileCrunch and having to start building an audience again from zero is not something that I relish doing.”

He also admitted that “Michael can be difficult to work with it isn’t my desire to ‘spite’ anyone. I have a tremendous amount of respect for what Michael accomplished with TechCrunch and certainly MobileCrunch was a significant beneficiary of this success.”
