TechCrunch Sells to AOL

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.
