From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
TechCrunch is a news website focused on information technology companies, ranging in size from startups to established NASDAQ-100 firms. It was founded by Michael Arrington in 2005. On September 28, 2010, at its TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco, AOL announced that it would acquire TechCrunch. [4 ] The transaction was rumored to be between $25m and $40m. [5 ] [6 ]
In 2011, the site came under fire for possible ethics violations. These included claims that Arrington's investments in certain firms which the site had covered created a conflict of interest.
The controversy that ensued eventually led to Arrington's departure, and other writers, including [7 ] Paul Carr and Sarah Lacy, followed suit. [8 ] [9 ]
