TechCrunch – News that matters

Michael ArringtonWhen I woke up today, I saw that finally Norwegian newspapers had opened their eyes towards those bloggers that doesn’t shout the loudest. One of the blogs I’ve been reading for quite some time now, TechCrunch – was mentioned in a Norwegian newspaper (Dagbladet.no). Now, I am sure that there are quite a few Norwegians out there that reads TechCrunch already, though it’s a good reminder for others that there -are- other information sources than Perez Hilton. Being in the computer business myself, I find it interresting to follow what people like Michael Arrington believes is the top-of-the-notch. But one can wonder what goes through peoples minds when they think that their business will be successful if they are just mentioned by him, or well – mentioned by anyone really on TechCrunch and the sister sites.

Sure – getting mentioned by such sites will probably generate a quick boost in interrest; though often in such cases – where people are desperate to get mentioned – it’s usually due to having products that won’t sell unless someone is tricked into believing that this particular product is the very best on the market. Now, if the same people would just concentrate on finalizing their product, and making it better – then they would probably see that they would be far better off. But before you get ready to sharpen your knife and aim for the picture of me to the right here; this is -my- point of view.
