Behold: TechCrunch Erupt In Iceland (Pictures)

As some of you may have read, I was all set to step on a plane on Sunday to head to New York City for TechCrunch Disrupt. Then a giant volcano exploded.

But being stranded in Iceland wasn’t all bad. First of all, it’s a beautiful country. Second, when some local entrepreneurs read about our misfortune, they got together and organized an event: TechCrunch Erupt. My friends and I headed over to the event on Monday for conversation, beer, and livestreaming of TechCrunch Disrupt from the U.S.

They put this event together at the last minute, and dozens of local entrepreneurs still showed up — on a Monday afternoon. Below, find some images of the event (some of you may recognize a few folks from the U.S. tech community in them — and you may remember the two women in the top picture from this story).
