image If you haven’t been reading Lalawag, you should.  It’s a project of someone who’s an ex-Masher like me, Sean Percival.

Or at least it was.  Sean today seems to have turned the site over to his wife, the lovely and talented Laurie.

If you’re not familiar with Lalawag, as the name would indicate, the site rose up during the depreciation of Valleywag. It has a similar tone and scope as the ‘Wag has, but is centered around the Los Angeles area, and employs one of my favorite folks from Valleywag, the ever-acerbic Alaska Miller.

As became quite obvious during my tenure at Mashable, the tech scene rising up in the L.A. area is unique and quite interesting.  Lalawag provides a way to keep a finger on its pulse.
