TechCrunch Traffic Up 36 Percent Due To Facebook IPO News

Don’t look now, but TechCrunch – the blog founded by Michael Arrington, who in 2010 then sold it to the Tim Armstrong and Arriana Huffington-ran AOL, and the same Huffington who Michael recently called a “touchy psychopath” for her then-heavy-handed role at the tech blog, chasing off Arrington, and bloggers Sarah Lacy, Paul Carr, and […]

TechCrunch Disrupt: Michael Arrington Forgets AngelGate At Bin 38

Is TechCrunch Founder Michael Arrington losing his memory? Earlier today, this blogger noted the drop in buzz for TechCrunch Disrupt New York, and pointed as the reason, in part, the absence of Michael Arrington’s direct control over the proceedings, and particularly his genius for making up news stories that created attention, and just happened to […]

TechCrunch Disrupt New York: First Kinda Post – Michael Arrington Disrupt Lacks Buzz

Web 2.0 Summit No-Go For 2012. I’m Trying To Cry…

2012 will see the Web 2.0 Summit, that small conference that Tim O’Reilly and John Battelle expertly established to become a kind an annual bellweather of where tech was going. Even as much as Sarah Lacy laments its passing, for some reason, try as I might to cry, as much as I am trying to […]

Sarah Lacy Strikes Back Against TechCrunch With PandoDaily.com

TechCrunch Senior Editor Sarah Lacy, who I first met when she was hanging with then-Valleywag Editor Owen Thomas, is the first former TechCrunch staffer (there are a lot of them: Michael Arrington , Paul Carr, Heather Harde, and Lacy) to actually announce that she’s going to announce a first funding round for a new venture […]

CNN’s Solidad O’Brien Calls Out Michael Arrington On Black Entrepreneurs

At first this blogger was just going to leave the whole issue of TechCrunch Founder Michael Arrington’s statement that he “Didn’t know any black entrepreneurs” alone at one blog post. But after a series of emails, a video follow-up, the one above, was in order. And to really hammer home the point that what Michael […]

TechCrunch Disrupt More Than Arrington v. AOL; TripTrotting, Shaker

As TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco goes into day two, what becomes apparent to this blogger is TechCrunch blog founder Michael Arrington’s “departure” from the blog itself is, for all practical purposes, cosmetic. The famed “argument” between Arianna Huffington and Michael never really happened according to Huffington herself. Michael’s just playing it all to look more […]
