VentureBeat has acquired Bitmob, and its founder, as well as former Ziff Davis Media editorial director, Dan "Shoe" Hsu, has been brought on as GamesBeat's editor-in-chief. Ben Popper, one of the founding editors of The New York Observer's Silicon Alley blog, Betabeat, was also hired on as VentureBeat's east coast editor. VB's goal with the acquisition and high-profile recruitment is to expand its games channel, with Hsu overseeing the changes. Dean Takahashi, lead writer for GamesBeat, and Sebastian Haley, review editor and executive video producer, will report to directly to Hsu. Thanks, IndustryGamers.
