Michael Arrington, former domainer and founder of TechCrunch has sold the widely popular technology blog to AOL. Tim Armstrong CEO of AOL confirmed the news on TC in a post this morning. Obviously, AOL is still trying to gain traction in becoming a digital news and content provider. The opening line of Armstrong’s post this morning read:
Leading Authority on Tech News Will Expand AOL’s Growing Offering of World-Class, Audience-Relevant Content
The majority of commenters on the post booed, hissed and yelled sellout! So will TC ever be the same after today? We’ll see. I actually frequent the blog quite often since it can be a pretty good source for breaking domain name news.
