TechCrunch has published thousands of blog posts over its nearly 5 and a half years. Many are good one-day stories, some we’d like to forget, but others are gems. These classics are just as interesting today as when they were first written.
But try discovering them. It’s nearly impossible. That’s one of the downsides of a reverse chronology blog.
There is a solution. Presenting TechCrunch Classics. A page that will keep an updated list of memorable and favorite posts. The page will live at: beta.techcrunch.com/classics.
Our new corporate overlords (er, AOL) are starting to bring us first-time TechCrunch readers. This should be a good introduction for our newbies. It should be a good resource for our long-time readers as well.
Below is a copy of the current page.
