It’s that time of year again. 2010 is almost toast and it’s now time to figure out what just happened. So what were the most important developments in tech this year? Was it the rise of Groupon, Foursquare, and Twitter, the demise of Yahoo and Chatroulette, or Google’s self-driving car and the viral YouTube video of a monkey riding on the back of a pig?
And who better to figure out 2010 than two of Techcrunch’s most authoritative writers – co-editor Erick Schonfeld and prolific new recruit, the writer Alexia Tsotsis. For all their stylistic differences, Erick and Alexia agreed on much about 2010 – especially Yahoo’s demise and the rise and rise and rise of Facebook & Mark Zuckerberg. Where they parted ways, however, was over the historic significance of pig-riding monkeys and self-driving cars.
