Of Paczkowski, venture capitalist Paul Kedrosky said, "(he) is quietly creating the most drily funny oeuvre of tech-related commentary anywhere. He is cheerfully adept at sticking in the knife, catching executives speaking sweet nothings, and generally providing much-needed context for the silliness that passes for Silicon Valley speak."

In January 2006, Paczkowski announced his retirement as Good Morning Silicon Valley's editor to take a position working with Wall Street Journal reporters Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher on, an online extension of the duo's annual D: All Things Digital conference.

In May 2007, Paczkowski was incorrectly named as the anonymous author of the Fake Steve Jobs Blog – a spoof diary of Apple's founder. The blog is actually authored by Daniel Lyons.

In February 2015, Paczkowski stepped down as deputy managing editor at Re/code to manage the San Francisco bureau of BuzzFeed News.[1] He is currently the site's tech editor.
