Techcrunch founder Michael Arrington is even more famous

Fred Vogelstein from Wired has written a really good profile of TechCrunch and Michael Arrington. It manages to capture the Mike that I know and love.

The profile starts out with the story of 3 Dutch entrepreneurs descending on Mikes house at 10am one Tuesday morning, wearing white suits and carrying a latte and a croissant.

They have posted their own version of events here and also a video embedded below:

Techmeme is following the discussion.

I have to own up to the fact that it was my suggestion that the guys go and wake Mike up (they had missed seeing him the previous evening). The latte and croissant was my idea too. But I was not foolish enough to accompany them. Waking Mike up before his body naturally rises is not my idea of a good thing to do.

Sorry guys 🙂
