Earlier we reported that AOL’s top tech editor, TechCrunch boss Michael Arrington, plans to “actively” invest in many of the company covers.Another editor at another top tech pub, Mashable editor-at-large Ben Parr, doesn’t think that’s such a bad idea. 

He tweets:

“If I had Arrington’s money, I’d be investing in hot startups and savvy founders too. That time will be soon, though.”

(BTW: Soon? Is Mashable selling?)
