Techcrunch’ed’UK – it’s a shame

I want to add my voice to all the others out there on the recent goings on at Techcrunch.

Many others have described events, so I won’t do that.  If you haven’t heard and are curious you can work around most of the coverage starting over at Broadstuff

I think the whole saga is very unfortunate.  I have a lot of time for Sam Sethi and the work he has been doing at Techcrunch.  As I have written before this kind of activity is a very important catalyst for the UK internet scene.  Also worthy of mention is that Sam has put a lot of work in without taking a lot out, if you know what I mean.

I am already hearing lots of chat about a replacement service, so hopefully this won’t prove to be much of a disruption.

  • Nic,
    I think this event is a clear sign of the problem of having techcrunch (MA) ruling he industry (at least for a PR/interest). Mathieu is preparing a post showing that techcrunch is around 15% of widget impression of mybloglog, TC also explain the rise of crunched start-ups in the alexa ranking.
    Bubble on products is a real problem…

    I agree Raphael. The position of Techcrunch in the overall scheme of things isn’t sustainable as the sector grows – it will become a bottleneck (if it isn’t already). The TC impact on audience and Alexa ratings is a sign of that. Over time other equivalent channels should emerge.
