I don't normally have much feeling towards web sites. They're either there, or they aren't and if they fold, there's normally something else to fill the gap.
Techcrunch is a little different. I've followed it for years. Sometimes I agreed with their comments, sometimes I didn't. But, it was always (well, nearly) entertaining and generally informative, and the key players were nearly always larger than life.
It's therefore a shame to see it disintegrating in front of my very eyes.
I wish you all the very best of luck, folks, but looks like it's time to move on to pastures new.
