My old friend (and one of my favorite writers, btw) Mike Arrington aka @arrington is in the news again. This time, he’s back writing at Techcrunch, the tech blog he founded back in 2005, sold it for a bunch of money to AOL, then left under a bit of a cloud a year ago, then slowly but surely came back into the Techcrunch fold again.
A couple of months ago, Arrington tweeted something which I thought was hilarious. I liked it so much, I thought it would make a great t-shirt; especially one for wearing at geek fests like SXSW or TCdisrupt. Voila.
Mike is known for being quite controversial in public. In private, though, he can be a real sweetheart. Whatever. He’s a complex guy. It’s hard not to be when you’ve got THAT much going on, I suppose.
Congrats on everything, Mike, I’m very proud of you. Besides that, I’ve learned A TON from you, so have countelss others. Rock on.
Thanks for making the hipster novel for the daily cartoon. That made me laugh because on a ski trip last year we started hipster hunting. Also, just wanted to post to thank your engaged fans for dropping by my site. Very appreciative. I invite you, Hugh, staff, and fans to join If I Knew Now for Halloween today and Wednesday if you have time.
I passed the hipster cartoon on…wow that was great!
Have a wonderful week and stay safe on the coast.
