Mike is doing TechCrunch Disrupt–his spin on TechCrunch50–in New
York City later this month, and I will be continuing my plain vanilla
vision of TechCrunch50 at a new event called simply Launch (or “The
Launch Conference” if you like) in early 2011 (date will be announced
shortly). I will be speaking at his Disrupt conference later this
month, and he will be speaking and covering mine. There are no hard
feelings. We’re still friends, and as such, I’m not going to do any
press or comment further on the dissolution of TechCrunch50. It’s
painful enough to see a legendary brand die in year three (tear drop).
It looks like Calacanis' and Arrington's conflict during last year TechCrunch50 probably took a place. So Jason is about to start his own version of TechCrunch50 - The Launch Conference.
