When Michael Arrington started writing about startups on TechCrunch, the new boom was just beginning. Now, 10 years later, we’re still here, offering a unique, honest perspective on the industry that touches so many.
There are a lot of reasons TechCrunch has survived acquisition(s), leadership changes, micro and macro bubbles and the parachute onslaught of the world’s journalists — but one of the most important ones is you — our community.
You’ve stuck with us and continue to make it an honor to do what we do. And that, we think, is something to celebrate.
Honoring the very first backyard celebration our founder held way back in 2005, TechCrunch is marking its blogging decade with a picnic of sorts in San Francisco. We’d love for you to join us on June 6, 2015, from 12-3 p.m. at the Presidio. We’ll bring the food trucks and beer; you bring a blanket and your friends. The more the merrier!
Speaking of our founder, Arrington and our very first CEO Heather Harde are coming, as is co-founder Keith Teare and the West Coast TechCrunch editorial team, as well as a motley cast of characters, so it will be like a family reunion of sorts. The tickets are 20 bucks and you can buy them here. We hope to see you there!
Our sponsors make TechCrunch events possible. If you are interested in learning more about sponsoring food trucks and beer at our birthday party, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
