I don’t even read TechCrunch anymore so whether Arrington loses his baby or not, I don’t really care. It is a shame that good writers like M.G. Siegler who I’ve come to known through DaringFireball and ForkBombr are being dragged into this whole mess to begin with.
And yes, I totally agree that this whole thing screams of really bad viral marketing for the upcoming Disrupted event.
