A Sincere Post From The Lord Of The Startups, Michael Arrington; Some Things Need To Change

Michael Arrington During a Conference “Yesterday as I was leaving the DLD Conference in Munich, Germany someone walked up to me and quite deliberately spat in my face. Before I even understood what was happening, he veered off into the crowd, just another dark head in a dark suit. People around me stared, then looked away and continued their conversation.

Generally at events people come up to me to talk about their startups. My reaction varies depending on how much sleep I’ve gotten and how many times I’ve been pitched in the previous hour. Sometimes I sit down and watch a demo. Sometimes I give them my card and ask them to contact me. Yesterday I was battling the flu, jetlag and little sleep, and had been battered for three days straight with product pitches from entrepreneurs desperate for press. The event was over and I was on my way back to my hotel. The last thing I wanted was another product pitch as I hurried to the car that would drive me to Davos for the next event. So when I saw this person approach me out of the corner of my eye, I turned away slightly and avoided eye contact. Sometimes that works. But in this case all it did was make me vulnerable to the last thing I expected.” Read The Rest From Here

Give Up Internet‘s Note
: Michael i’m very happy as passionate TC reader. I remember the days when you start Tech Crunch. There was a sitemeter on the site and it was not password protected. I was following TC’s hits and it’s growing trend. Tech Crunch made a big difference in a short time period. I was expecting such a big success but “CrunchPad” is a big surprise for me. Probably for the whole industry too.

Congragulations again… Keep on Crunching!
Never Give Up Internet!

The April Fools Joke That Keeps On Giving [PIC]

Source: Tech Crunch / “The Sacramento Bee mentions our ongoing litigation with Facebook and our next Attorney General, Chris Kelly (which was actually settled later that April Fools Day).

One thing I’m going to do in the future is go back and clearly mark April Fools jokes. I can easily understand how a non-tech reporter could be clicking through links, see that, and add it at the end of a story and create this kind of confusion.”

note: You can post jokes even if you are Michael Arrington, at Tech Crunch.
