TechCrunch Passes 10,000 Posts, Celebrates by Killing the Embargo

Filed as News on December 19, 2008 5:17 am

Techcrunch LogoTechCrunch has announced that they’ve passed the 10,000 post mark, which is impressive to say the least. The tech blog launched in June 2005 and has become a phenomenon since then, loved, hated, ignored, and important to the web 2.0 startup industry, if you can call it that.

They’re saying that the Death to the Embargo post was the 10,000th one, and naturally the controversy hit TechMeme, with lots of follow-ups. ReadWriteWeb takes another stance, saying they’ll respect embargoes, which Arrington & Co. obviously won’t anymore. Personally, I think embargoes are a good thing when used right. Problem is, usually it is just a press release you can’t write about until a few days time, and that’s just nonsense. It is a whole different matter if you’ve got early access or similar. An interesting discussion to say the least, one we’ll pass for now.

Anyway, congratulations to TechCrunch on writing a whole lotta posts!

    The comment strings can get brutal on Tech Crunch. Takes a certain type of personality to sometimes dive into the commenting on that site.
