Honan to lead BuzzFeed's SF bureau

BuzzFeed needs a chief for its brand new Silicon Valley bureau, and Mat Honan is the man for the job. Honan is a senior staff writer with Wired.

"I am so, so thrilled that we've convinced @Mat Honan to join BuzzFeed as SF Bureau Chief, to build something big there," announces EIC Ben Smith.

Meanwhile, this was Honan's way of recognizing the big news: "Just got off Bart. What did I miss?"

 Owen Williams with The Next Web jokes, "some guy named 'matt' got a job."

Also at Next Web, Roberto Baldwin wistfully tweets, "Would have been awesome if Twitter’s group DM was live now because, I’m pretty sure we’re all hitting up @mat with smiley faces."
