Entrepreneur Mike Arrington, editor of TechCrunch, made headlines all over the web this past weekend. Bloggers, and even the mainstream media, blasting him for being a 'no show' at last week's BlogWorldExpo.
I don't know Mike. Maybe some don't like him. Maybe some are simply jealous of TechCrunch's success. The fact is that the site does break a lot of important stories.
Evidently Mike didn't even know that he was being promoted as being the the show schedule.
Late yesterday, he made a post to CrunchNotes, his personal blog, canceling all upcoming speaking engagements.
Truly a sad chapter in an industry that needs to hear from people that have achieved success in the rapidly growing and dynamic blog space.
