I love when people don’t want to do their jobs and then complain about it. Michael Arrington at TechCrunch has decided that because of the constant bombardment from PR firms and the fact that the age old tool of the trade, the embargo, always seems to get broken, he’s going to set up some new rules. He’ll smile, accept the embargo and then break it when and if he’s good and ready.
Yeah, that’ll be good. Sure the system sucks. Sure folks are out hustling and trying to get an edge and things have gotten out of control.
Come play in my other pen sometime Michael, and deal with actors trying to get an audition, or a leg up in one, if you think the PR folks are too much for you to handle.
Give it a rest and do what you signed on to do.
