    Attending CES? TechCrunch Wants To See Your Company

    CES is a horrible, god-awful experience that will shave years off your life. The casinos, the food, the people, the germs. Horrible. All of it. But we love it! And we’re sending a huge contingent to the show again this year and want to see your gadgets, toys and products. TechCrunch cares much more for the hardware startups than the big CE players. We want to see the future FitBits and… Read More

  • This Week On Bullish: The Rise Of American Ecommerce

    Hello and welcome to Bullish, TechCrunch’s first talk show. This episode matters a bit more to me than usual, as it is the last week that I will host. After an amazing few years at TechCrunch, I’m changing jobs, which will make it ever so slightly harder to come in every week and put on the show. All that aside, this week we dug into the American ecommerce market, a fine topic… Read More

  • Mobile Blog JKOnTheRun Is Reborn After The Fall Of Gigaom

    Mobile Blog JKOnTheRun Is Reborn After The Fall Of Gigaom

    Harken back with me to the heady days of 2004. The century was still young and we humans were yet unsullied by the great iPhoning of mobile technology. A young man, James Kendrick, hat in one hand and valise in the other, had just disembarked from the great ship HMS Mainstream Tech Media and begun writing on a website called JKOnTheRun. In those heady days tech blogs grew fat on the vine. Read More

  • 61 Percent Of Disqus Comments Are Made With Pseudonyms

    61 Percent Of Disqus Comments Are Made With Pseudonyms

    One of the unending debates in blogging circles is about the value of comments. How do you encourage the best comments and discourage the anonymous trolls? Do you even need comments?  Or do you enforce civility by requiring real names, through the use of Facebook comments (which is what we currently use on TechCrunch) at the expense of discouraging conversation? But there is a middle… Read More
